Alright cool! And that would be awesome. One last question. What does the bracket do and do I need it? Can't wait to get this build.

P.S. How would I go about returning my old ram? I purchased it from Newegg.com.

Um, to return the ram you already have, you'll have to request an RMA refund. You'll get a RMA number, and once you're given that number, you have 15 days to return it. But there is a 15% restocking fee. More info can be found here:
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Yes, you need the bracket in order to fit the cpu cooler on the i7.

Besides not being a huge 4870x2 fan despite that fact it offers great performance May I suggest sticking with 1 DVD-RW burner and getting the 750w for the extra $15 more

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

headroom never hurts

I only have one DVD-RW burner. The other one is just a readable drive. And is that power supply better than the one mentioned by gt7sanremo? If so, can someone confirm this?

The 650 will be enough power.

I forgot to mention, I will be using this for gaming, PS, Video Editing, and Fruity Loops Studio(Music Producing Program) Will be getting a MIDI keyboard. So my question is, will i need anything else to get the best for all of these needs? Like a sound card or a midi port?

You could just get one of these:
Newegg.com - E-MU Xmidi 1x1 Midi Interface - Sound Card Accessories

Less expensive compared to a sound card.
