Well after all is said and done this is the final build:
ASUS M5A99X EVO MOBO
OCZ ZT 750W PS
Corsair Force 3 240G SSD
16G Corsair Vengance DDR3
Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200RPMHDD
XFX Double D FX-HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 GPU
SB Xi-Fi XtremeGamer APU
I did get a new case - MSI Interceptor series Barricade and am using the stock cooler thus far. I will start to put this all together in a week or so. I probably shoould have gone with at least a 2TB HD.. but I got this drive almost a year ago.
Thanks for all the suggestions... After all is said and done I will wind up getting that GPU for $220.. for a great one card solution and the only future upgrade might be another 16G of RAM and another card if it calls for it.. and by then both should be substantially less than they were now in cost.
Let me know if there were any config or hardware issues when you are done.
