Either Corsair or Thermaltake PSU, minimum of 800 watts for this build.

and why the hell is that Ti 560 almost as much as a 580? It shouldn't be anywhere NEAR that cost, the 560 Ti is supposed to be a budget board.

Oh, the 560 is a dual GPU board... I haven't seen much about the dual 560 board yet, but initial glance shows it faster than a 580, so go for the 560 Ti.

For Intel builds, grab the fastest RAM you can afford, so the 1866 (first link) You'll have more overclocking headroom. If you don't care about overclocking, there's nothing wrong with going with the second link (1600)
