Default Help/Feedback on my new gaming rig 1800 budget

So its time that I built my own gaming computer and I've been doing a lot of research and have put a build together. I choose intel over amd due to the sandybridge which has been getting alot of good feedback. I was quite confused on which motherboard/graphics card to pick so any feedback on my choices would be much appreciated. Also if you see anything that I should swap out for better performance but doesnt affect the price that much that would be great. Currently my shopping cart is at 1417$ without shipping and I also still need dual monitors and mouse/keyboard which i expect to be around 350$. My budget is around 1800.

Case - Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced RC-932-KKN5-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0, Black Interior and Four Fans-1x 230mm front RED LED fan, 1x 140mm rear fan, 1x 230mm top fan, and 1x 230mm side fan

Hard drive - Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive I dont see the need for ssd(to my knowledge it doesnt improve performance just loads stuff faster)

Graphics Card - Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Get a better power supply that doesn't suck cock, there's a new intel out, the i7-3200k, and besides that you're golden. And i played the diablo beta, and if you don't have a fusion reactor to back up the giant black cock that is diablo, then you are fucked. it'll tear up your graphics card like wet toilet paper after i get done with a fish taco

I would have to disagree with you here about the power supply. corsair makes great, reliable power supplies. What would you recommend over it?

to original post: build looks good. as said in the first reply, the new i7 is out but i think the 2600k is still a great product to buy

I love working in the Cooler Master HAF cases. Big and roomy with plenty of options for cable management.

That seems nice, but 1800 dollar budget? This rig seems to be under budget right now... Maybe get two of those graphics cards and some water cooling for beast overclocking.

Maybe some more memory too.
