What is your budget? You should choose some better components. Don't skimp on stuff, especially when your pc is 2500k/580.

Don't really have a budget but I would say max 2000$. Prefer to keep it around 1500 though. :) 
But I don't want a shiny expensive case haha, just something that is plain.

I know it's a bit more expensive. But it's sleek, bigger, and has much better airflow.

For the power supply, the ModXSTream is a horrible power supply. This one is a lot better. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...

Motherboard, you should go with the regular sized ATX P8Z77.

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... for RAM, you should get 8gb.

Great fans if you want more. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...

Um, I want to keep it small. I should've mentioned that hehe :) 
I still want to stick with the mATX board cause it will fit in a smaller case.
Don't want a big bulky thing standing around.
I've never really understood what ram to use though. Everyone says something different.
I want to use 4x 2gb of ram, so that its spread between them. I wont need 16gb of ram or atleast i dont think so.
