as for the rest, be sure to get a high quality
and what kind of case are you going to be re-using.
some of the most overlooked aspects of building a machine is good airflow.
without good airflow, you can run into some serious problems while running newer tech.
Thanks for the link, I tried searching everywhere for a comparison thread. I'm going to jump on a craigslist deal that I found, which will get me half off on the price of a 7750. The case is an old Soyo case. It has been modded for more air flow in the front and back. 2 80mm fans in front, and 3 80mm fans in the rear. Also has a single exhaust fan right near the CPU heatsink and fan, not sure if that will be true with a new motherboard, but I have extra lexan, so it doesn't matter. By saying 'quality PSU', are you inferring that the Rosewill in not quality? I definitely don't want to skimp on a power supply, but I don't keep up on PSU brands. I could probably find a PC Power & Cooling, which is a brand I trust.

The RP's are decent little psu's but with in a month the fan will either get loud as **** or completely stop all together.
I had to change out the fan in my RP600 and it was only 2 weeks old
Thanks, I was wondering about them, which is why I mentioned them.
