Hi,

I have this list so far:

CPU: Intel i5 2500K
MOBO: MSI Z68A GD65 Gen 3
RAM: G-skill sniper 2x4 8gb (dual)
GPU: EVGA GTX 560 TI DS Super Clocked or HD7850
PSU: FSP Aurum 700watts
CASE: Corsair Carbide Series 400R Mid Tower Case
HSF: Noctua (NH D14) CPU Cooler
MON: Samsung 23\" (S23A300B)

Is there anything out of place here? It's my first time building a rig, so your comments would really be helpful. :D 

I'm planning to SLI two 560s when the need to upgrade arises. Will my 700w PSU be able to handle it? I'm also concerned with the D14 cooler, not sure if it will fit inside the case.

Thanks!

Change the PSU with CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750M 750W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... modular and the same price like FSP.
If you want something more powerfull and modular http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 125$ after rebates.
CPU COOLER : COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 35$
Buy 7870 is much better than 7850.
