Default budget> finishing build

alright my budget increased due to tax returns 900$ + my stash 300+ i have
alot more to work with for the rest of my build (check sig). wish i would have anticipated my return, but anyhow thought i would get some feed back first...
will be OCing a little (probly to 2.4ghz cpu), i game and i use 3ds max + zbrush. also i heard somewhere that corsair was made for asus mobos, is there truth to this? any input/sugestions will be much appreciated.
p.s. double the ram price (i would like to get 4g dual)


i i plan on upgrading my gpu to the 7900 a 3-5 months after its realease, will my psu be fine for now, also will it handle the 7900? (probly not lol).
