I'm not sure whether to question your sense of metaphor, light-hearted mention of tsunamis, or answer the question...

Personally i'd go for a bit more RAM, 4GB seems a little too standard these days, especially next to the rest of that hardware.

EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked 2GB MSI R9 270X // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black

motherboard fine

memory I would get DDR3-1333 at least and for games like battlefield 3 it probably wouldnt hurt to get 8Gb which would also be in keeping with your specs like two 560sli and would def be future proof.

are you planning on overclocking your i5 2500k? it should be fine with one 560ti but with two you should plan on overclocking it so there minimal bottleneck from your cpu. in which case you should look at a decent cooler and add that into your budget

One very important component that is not included in your list is a PSU. Get a high quality brand and one that is 850w upwards, 1000w just to be safe. This way you can power both 560ti's and have a little juice to spare

I don't plan on over clocking, but I may a bit. What components do you recommend I change my ram and memory too? I'm trying to put a decent amount of money into this, but not break my bank at the same time

I also have a 750w power supply for now until I get another card. Should this be good enough for now?
