Only thing i can comment on is your choice of PSU, underpowered for your requirements...

Looking at the link there is a choice to buy a hiper 580 type M i have just bought a Hiper 630 type M, apart from being nearly silent it is superbly built,got more cables and adapters than you will ever need...

Have a look on Cougar Extreme they have become very popular on the forums as of late.
