Default Custom Building a Gaming Computer - HELP needed

This will be my first time building my own computer. These will be the parts I am looking to get. I would like to know if everything is compatible, if all the parts will fit well together, if the power supply is efficient/acceptable, if I would need any additional cables/cords/fans, etc. Thank you

All looks good. Although personally I would get a GTX260 core 216 or GTX275 rather then the 4890. But it's up to you. Also, I would get a 700 watt psu, but corsair is a very good brand, that makes excellent powersupplys. I just prefer as much headroom as I can get when it comes to power supplies

Was gonna get the 4890 just incase i wanted to use cfx later on and run 2 of them... Do they video cards have to be indentical for cfx? Also, why would you suggest a 700 watt psu, just out of curiosity ( trying to learn as much as possible )

As far as graphics, the 4890 is excellent, but the 4850 x2 should be something to consider.

Other than that, it looks good.

Oh yeah I vote 700w PSU also.
You will need it when you crossfire, those things draw a lot of current!

Great. I would go with the 700 watt in case you wanted to add more later, such as another video card. And yes, to crossfire you need identical cards, although I think ATI has a hybrid video or something along those lines that lets you use different cards together. But I would go with a 260, because you can still SLI those. But once again, it's preference. I've always preferred nvidia over ATI, especially when you get past the $150 mark.

I would suggest that if you are in that price range, that you look into the antec 900 and similar cases. Those things are built excellent, and have unmatched airflow. I'm going to get one when I can afford it. As for apevia cases, from what I've heard (I'm gonna be honest, I've never owned one) they're somewhat flimsy, and their quality is so-so.
