Windows 7: New-ish Build?

New-ish Build?

I was thinking of saving up for a couple of new parts. Just a couple though and this could take anywhere between 6 months to a year. I just wanted to know whether it would be alright. An Australian computer shop called MSY will be where I'm purchasing everything.

CPU
Intel Core i7-2600k 3.4Ghz
Motherboard
ASUS P8H61-M-LE
Memory
Strontium 8192MB DDR3 1333Mhz (Carried over from current build)
Graphics Card
msi GeForce N560GTX-M2D1GD5 1GB (Carried over from current build)
Sound Card
Default Sound Card
Monitor
CHIMEI CMV 221D 22" (Carried over from current build)
Hard Drives
Seagate 3.5'' 2TB HDD (Carried over from current build)
PSU
SHAW Viper-1500w Gaming PSU (Carried over from current build)
Case
RAIDMAX Typhoon with 500W PSU
Coolermaster Gladiator RC-600 with PSU
Coolermster RC-922M-KKNI HAF 922 NO PSU
Coolermaster SGC-2000 Storm Scout NO PSU
Antec DF-30 Dark Fleet Gaming Case no PSU

So, all the linked products are the new parts I'll be buying. For these particular parts, are there any better parts (on the same site), for around the same price? I would prefer to keep the price as low as possible. Same thing for the cases. I've put a few down, so I'd like to know which case is 'better'.

Same thing with the motherboard. I just picked the cheapest one. Any better options? I'd rather not go over, let's say $110.

I realise my PSU is terrible but it's holding up fine with my GPU so I think it may work with the new build. Will it be able to support the i7 and the GTX 560? I got it for free so I'm not complaining.

Thanks in advance,
Jaidyn

Just going to mention in 6 months to a year, you'll likely want to revise your choices as new technologies will have become available

I think you might be happier with a different board, but the choices on that site are very limited.

The storm scout was on my list of cases I was pondering, it's a pretty nice one. Raidmax cases are nice for the money.

Yes, I thought about that. I'd rather not spend too much money though on new technology. Sure, if it's cheap I'll get it. But otherwise, I'll stick with these options.

Yes, MSY doesn't have too many products. It's only a small chain of stores. But out of the available motherboards what would you recommend?

One would hope...considering it has about 3x as much power as you actually need.

I assume you're being sarcastic. Take a look at the comments on the PSU. It's apparently just about the worst PSU you can buy. The posters in this thread for example, hate the brand Shaw. Just Googling it brings up a dozen different websites and forums advising against buying the product. So, you can probably see why I'm asking that question.

Don't overclock and don't run at high loads for extended periods of time and you should be fine although I would consider replacing it sooner rather than later.
