CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80570E8400 - Retail
GPU:SAPPHIRE 100243-1GL Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire
MB: ASUS P5Q Deluxe LGA 775 Intel P45 Intel Motherboard - Retail
PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC
RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
HDD:Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3400620AS 400GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
Cooling:XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle
& XIGMATEK ACK-I7751 Retention Bracket
Case: Antec Twelve Hundred Black ATX Full Tower
So I guess my final question is, will everything there work right together. I mean ive checked to make sure everything is the correct one, but let me know if any of those parts are for some reason the wrong type/version. I also plan on overclocking to some extent, the 650W should be fine right?

Check to see if you can find a 4870 by someone other than Saphire they aren't all bad but they aren't the best and they stick cheap crap coolers on the things its worth it to get something with decent cooling the first time around and save the hassle.

You might want to check out getting an after market cooler, the new cards run hot and from personal experience an aftermarket cooler can make a huge difference to the stability of the whole system. I'm still on the stock cooler on my 8800GT and I hate it, the Arctic Acceleros just came back into stock in the UK so Ill be getting one soon for my own system the coolers now are cheap and very good and can make a huge difference to system temps and system noise.

One of the good things about Nvidia partners (XFX and EVGA) is that you won't void the warranty if you modify the video card. I believe you can get away with it as well with BFG if you just put the stock cooler back in place when you RMA.

I like the blue lighting from that Antec 1200 case...
