Default Final picks for my upgrade! Sandy build! ~AU$1400<

Done some final tweaks...

Intel CORE i7 2600K/3.40GHz/8MB CACHE/LGA115
CoolerMaster HAFX RC-942-KKN1
Corsair 8GB Vengeance Memory 1600 CL8
Corsair AX-850 ATX Power Supply, 80 PLUS Gold Certified, 100% Modular Cabling
Asus P8P67 PRO MB
Asus Xonar D2X PCI-E soundcard 7.1 Channel
Zalman CNPS9900MAX CPU Cooler with Red LED
Samsung Spinpoint 1TB HDD (In total i will have 4 of these on my system, 3 from my old)

Getting Asus Xonar Essence STX of the D2X.

This will set me back about 1400AUD$

Basically i went from 1200W to 850W on the PSU (After seeing the 1200W issues, and the 850W has none of that, it was pretty easy to decide which psu to get ><)

Added a sound card, a lot of people keep saying the Xonar is really good, so i hope my first soundcard purchase since the soundblaster days is going to be good lol!...

What do you guys think? Anymore final tweaks i should go for?

I wanted to go for SSD...but man the prices are really is as almost as buying a GTX580 in terms of cost...and i didn't feel like the cost is really worth it just yet...(I have seen the reviews in loading time/ is impressive no question about that...but the cost is pretty premium)..
