Dont get that PSU, stick with antec or corsair or maybe xfx. Drop the 2600k and get the 2500k and pick up a Z68 motherboard for $150-200 instead of the p67. Grab an aftermarket cooler and/or the 560Ti. It will be MUCH better than that 550

500-600 watts should be plenty for single card or 700-800 for SLI

Could be ok, but why gamble? Check some newegg reviews for your model. I don't use coolermaster as I saw them frequently closed out at frys dirt cheap. You get what you pay for. And maybe one third of the posts involve power supply issues.

Corsair should be ok. Again, read some newegg reviews. They should stock it, and issues like noise may be covered by some reviewers. I hate noise. 53 amps is plenty for non sli systems.

I use gskill ripjawsx and patriot; both work well in my amd systems. Try to use 1.5v ram, whatever brand you choose.
