Default Time for a new build!

Well I'm thinking its time for a new pc build. I don't think my two little 8800GTs will run the upcoming games well like Modern Warfare 3 or the main game I'm worried about, Battlefield 3! I've been doing research and I think I'm going to build an AMD machine. Here's the list of what I'm getting.

Case: Cooler Master 690 II Advanced (Going to get it windowless so I can cut my own in)
Mobo: Asus Crosshair V Formula 990fx (hasn't come out yet)
CPU: haven't decided yet because the mobo accepts the next gen of AMD processors coming out, if its too expensive I'll settle on some Phenom II six core black edition at 3.2 ghz
CPU Cooling: Koolance custom watercooling system. (I like their quick disconnect fittings.)
RAM: Corsair 12gbs Ddr3 (I actually want to keep the colour scheme red and black and I see GSkill is rich in red ram, but I hear some bad things about them, any of you guys use em?)
GPU: EVGA 560ti GTX (might get annother later down the line)

As for hard drive and cd drive, I'll just rip it from my current build. Or should I pick up one of those blue ray drives? I do have 2 3d monitors and the girl loves 3d movies.

You should be in bed, with the girl watching movies, not on the computer

Well everything is connected to the computer like my Optoma HD66 3d projector. So we do get close and watch movies just on the couch rather than bed.

You guys think a 600 watt psu can power all that minus the second 560 but have one of my 8800gt as a dedicated physx card?

Yeah, you want to get at least a power supply strong enough so when you grab the mouse the electrical current at least makes the hair on your nut sack stand up or it isn't worth it...

Well since you put it like that Maison I guess I will get a new one then.

I was just hoping my current psu would be able to power it for now then grab an 850 psu when I get the money.

Well I just ordered a 850w psu from Cooler Master and the first 560 card. so when that arrives I'll set up the 560 as graphics and one of my 8800gt as a dedicated physx card

Also there's a small change in the build. Instead of an AMD build I came back running like the hoe I am to Intel. So I got an EVGA X58 SLI LE and I'll buy a i7 950 cpu.

Hey how. Do you guys feel about GSkill RAM?
