I think your pretty much set to go....not sure you need a 1000W Psu, but i guess if that what you want to get =) Everything is compatible and i think it will be a pretty fast system.

lol the only reason for a 1000watt is for an eventual upgrade or maybe another video card but ive been thinking maybe kicking it down to an 800watt what do you think?

at about around 1000, to 1100. the highest is 1200 but im trying to avoid that for now, i think what i have is a pretty good set up for a little while just need a bit more advice is all, i do plan on upgrades later in the future though pretty soon after i build when my income settles down a bit more and can just buy individual parts instead of them all at once which is why i have a 1000watt PSU, but ive been thinking maybe to downgrade to a like 800watt what do you think?

Yeah, you don't need 1000W, even for SLI, heck that is what you need for 3-SLI setups. 750W will be fine.

i know guys i have a suckish budget right now >,< its 1000 to 1100, 1200 at the highest but im trying to avoid that number as much as i can. i just need to get my rig actually up off the ground and built then when my income settles down a bit ill be able to upgrade each individual part later on i just need to get a good rig built first off XD and i think that this is pretty good considering the budget, again as i have stated before im more than likely downgrading the PSU

If you aren't stuck on ordering from newegg, iceclock's build is pretty much exactly what I would recommend and it looks to be well under the total budget from ordering everything from newegg.
