i5-2500k certainly wont bottleneck SLI 560Ti's
8GB RAM is plenty for any non-server system
750w PSU is enough for SLI 560Ti's

So id say your good to go. :)

Let me know if you hear any grinding noise from the pump from that Corsair H100. Mine was quiet at first couple days but then the pump got really loud with a constant rattling/grinding noise.... I think im gonna have to return and get a different one.

I turned up my H100 to the max and I don't hear any grinding. I have had it for about a month now and have been switching between low/high alot.

No problem at all for that fine rig.

Just do it. Your gaming performance will be transformed beyond recognition.

I run an 560Ti SLI on an i7 920 @4GHz, and 6GB RAM. This is a less powerful system than you have and CPU is never a bottleneck on mine.
