This is what i have so far.

Intel i5 3570k

128GB Crucial m4 SSD 2.5-inch SATA 6GB/s
Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb
Cooler Master 430 Elite Case
Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus
Galaxy GTX 560ti 448 core (plan on SLI in the future)

no regular hard drive?
on nvidia's webside it states minimum for a single card is 550watts. you need a power supply with four 6 pins to sli in the future. look for something along 600-700 watts.

Can a 128gb ssd work alone or do you need a hard drive too?
