1050w is overkill. 850w is plenty even with sli.
I personally like the NZXT HALE 82 Modular Power Supply. This is Modular, only comes to $140 and its a fantastic psu.

You will want a cpu cooler for sure. For overclocking,and just much quieter. The CM Hyper 212 EVO is awesome and only comes to $35.

Your case costs a ton and is massive! Why not get the cooler master HAF XM. Its only $130,a smaller form factor,and still has alot of the great features of its big bro.

I really don`t think you need that many fans. The HAF XM has plenty of fans to keep your system cool.

You may want to consider upgrading to a i7 3770k as this has much better support for your graphics card. It is also slightly faster. It isn`t quite as good as for overclocking,but you can still reach around 4.5Ghz with the 212 EVO.

With the money you saved..buy an ssd. this will speed up your performance beyond expectations. I love the Crucial M4. 128gb is probally good.

With that said,it looks like a sweet build! I`m jealous;)

i am replacing the fans with the other fans but the others are a good idea :na:

Like the other poster pointed out an 850w psu is more than enough for that build. Also you an an IDE optical drive up there. You want a SATA DVD/CD drive and not IDE. That's a must change.

andystanley brought up some good idea's. That CM HAF XM he mentioned is new on the market and Cooler Master gave it all the latest and greatest goodies. And as far as gaming goes an SSD is always nice to have when your loading up levels (maps) in any game. Gaming off an SSD is the only way to go imo. Give this build a look and read some of those reviews.
