Hey guys,
I've picked out these as the major components that I was hoping to get some advice on the other parts (such as case and ram) I have no issues with i just need to know that these parts are compatible with eachother. Once i have this built i do intend to do some basic overclocking and i will be upgrading to crossfire about a month after it is built.

I want to stick close to $1000 AUD for the initial build, but I'm willing to pump more cash into it in the months after its built (adding another GPU for Crossfire etc). For the time being i need a WiFi network adapter as i havent got a connection in my room (its being installed soon).
http://pccasegear.com/ this site has the best deals in my area and offers local pickup so i dont have to pay for postage.
Basically the computer is being built to comfortably max out GW2 and others.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated dude thanks for taking the time.

That board is useless with an unlocked CPU. Get a Z77 board so you can OC or get the i5-3470 if you don't want to. That PSU is crap. Get the ModXStream 600W for $10 less.
