if i were you i might spend a little bit more and get this PSU as to leave some room for upgrading...
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

other than that it seems to be a pretty solid build ^_^

Thanks, I should of mentioned I've already bought the case, PSU, and fans. RE the PSU I did consider getting the 620HX but in the end I decided it would be overkill as I have no intention of ever running xfire or SLI, I didn't consider the 650TX however as I wanted modular, the 650TX is probably cheaper than the 520HX (edit: I checked, it's about the same price)

yeah the 520hx is an awesome psu, so if you don't think you'll ever go crossfire or SLI then it'll be fine ^_^
