They are all solid choices. I do suggest the Samsung Spinpoint F3. Some people received them DoA but newegg does have a good policy and is quick with sending new ones. Keep that in mind. I would aim for 1600MHz because you will really benefit from that with Sandy Bridge processors. The 750W is good. You can easily SLI your 560 ti with it. As for your off the topic question, yes. I have some of those that I misplaced. Those do exists :)

i changed this build a bit...
everything is the same but going to use 8 gb of ram instead of 16,
gonna run 2 gtx560's in sli mode
and going to change the i7 to the core i5 2500k and overclock it to 4.5 ghz or near 4-5 ghz
and changing the case to a cooler master storm enforcer

does this sound good?
