Your link for the case does not go to a product.

PSU. If this was selected for use with a second GPU later? it is not suitable.

For a single GPU, i thinbk this is a better PSU.

SSD. Good drive but quite small. Keep it as lean as possible. Partition the HDD for Programs, Data storage, backups, including an image of the boot drive, after OS drivers and updates.

If you can squeeze a little more from the budget, consider going for this drive, http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820233191

Very good choice for the case.

You are almost set to go for a great build.

Your Mobo comes with only 2 SATA cables, so you will need one more for the SSD.

Looking at the specs for the XFX GPU, they have been real mean, no cables what so ever. If your screen has Display Port, should be number 1 choice, then HDMI.

Info you may find useful.

Download you Mobo user manual from the Manufacturers website as it may be more up to date than the one enclosed in the box.

You will need to do some research first. Lots of PC hardware is not compatible with Mac. It is not as simple as loading a DVD and installing, then there is the legal questions you must look at and decide if you are flying inside the law. Type in Hackingtosh in google.

I recommend you install windows, get your system running stable then duel Boot snow leopard.

ive done a little research and watched a few "how to videos." as whether it is legal or not seems kind of a grey area. i will get window first tho.
