Would like to order it today unless anyone see's any major problems. Couple of questions at the end

Gainward GeForce GTX 580 "GOOD Edition" 1536MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
Intel Core i7-2600K 3.40GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor - OEM
Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Intel Z68 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard
Crucial RealSSD M4 128GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Hard Drive
Corsair Vengeance Blue 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual/Quad Channel Kit
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache

Questions are :-

1. I have a Corsair 620 PSU which I'm assuming will be good enough for the job (will stick with one GPU)
2. Couldnt find any low-profile 4Gb memory at this price and speed but would prefer it if it exists
3. I know the WD is expensive for what it is, but I've always had WD and never had a problem
4. What sound card does everyone recommend? Dont want to spend a fortune (~£50)

Going to stick this in my current Antec902 with H50 and PSU.

*EDIT* Yes I know there will be the 2700k released soon, but its going to me more expensive than the 2600k from what I read and will only have a higher base clock. I'll be OC'ing anyway so that doesnt matter. Not interested in AMD (always had Intel)

I also do some video editing and effects (Adobe CS suite) so I figured the i7 would give me the edge when I'm encoding (currently takes an age with my Q6600 :p )

Re the memory, do you mean these? The linked ones are only 2Gb modules
