Keep in mind that the second PCI-E of the GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD2 only runs at 4x, not good for crossfire. The Asus P7P55D PRO has two PCI-E which runs at 8x when a second card is inserted.

If this is for gaming then the card you've bought isn't good, it's three generations behind.

those total $545 + shipping.

the corsair 550w was a good choice. it will easily handle the gfx card you have now and will handle a more powerful card when you decide to upgrade.

the 640gb black is out of stock atm. you could wait for more, or get one of these instead.

for the optical drive, you could get just a dvd burner

because like you said, you could use your ps3 for br movies
