Noobie Build Help.
This will be my first build and mostly I just want to make sure my products will be okay with each other and will fit together I will like all the hardware I would like to purchase and if I could just get some feed back not only on the build but if all the hardware is actually compatible I would really appreciate it!

if your planning on running 2 6870's in crossfire down the road, I'd look at getting a board with the 2nd PCIe x16 slot with at least x8 bandwidth, this one only has x4.
If your only going to run a single card, then that 750W PSU is way overkill, you'd be fine with a 500-550W range PSU.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
