I am sure ThermalTake makes a good PSU, I am just a fan of Seasonic. 1200W is overkill and unless you are doing some crazy 4 way SLI you wont need all that juice. If money is no issue though go for it. Get a modular one, cable management is so much easier.


As for CPU, that MOBO is a socket 1366 so you have to get an i7. Edit: wrong CPU socket,

For GPU I use a EVGA 560Ti which runs everything I need at max with no lag. Later when the price comes down, I am going to purchase a second one and run SLI. If money is not an issue spring for a 570 or 580.

These are just personal preferences, your other components look good.

The 2600K will not run on the ASUS Rampage II Extreme as it uses a different socket. Why Intel feels the need for several sockets at once is beyond me. That motherboard is a bit old, so you will need an LGA 1366 CPU. Compatible CPU's for that socket (Check your mobo's BIOS first) include the i7 950, 960, 980, and 990X.

The best single non-dual GPU you can use would be the HIS H797F3G2M Radeon HD 7970 3GB. The next step down would be the XFX FX-795A-TNFC Radeon HD 7950 Core Edition 3GB.
