  1. -I would go with this RAM:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231309
    It's cheaper and has a lower CAS Latency, so it's faster.
    -I would also go with 1 HDD until HDD prices go down, since the flood in thailand made the prices go up.
    -The PSU is overkill, even for 2 GTX580s, go with one that is 900W, it'll be more than enough to SLI:

    The 1600 RAM is still faster. CAS latency doesn't carry over between frequencies.

    You really don't need water cooling, as you almost certainly won't be pushing your 2600K to its OC limit. Just grab a $50 Mugen 3 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185168&Tpk=mugen%203).

    I agree on the HDD idea, but only if it's possible to start up RAID with data already on one of the drives. I don't know if that's the case; if it is, go for it.

    This PSU looks nicer to me, and it's 80+ Gold and $140 after MIR. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341044

    Here's your beastly $270 mobo. It'll allow you to upgrade your CPU to Ivy if you ever feel the craving. Honestly, though, a Z68 Extreme4 would probably do you fine for $125. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157269
  3. any more opnions? and about the psu... im not sure i wanna have enuff power... i went for 2x 8 gig sticks kuzz i need 32gb so i was saving other slots for when i can upgrade to more ram.
