you could do better on a budget under 3500 bucks

try dual 400 gig sata's in raid 1
go for pc power and cooling 550w psu
and personally i dont really like that antec case but it is your descision
and yes you selected the agp version of the eVGA 6800gt you need the pci express version
and for the heatsink you slected you will need a thermal paste to provid ebetter contact between the heatsink and the cpu
arctic silver 5 is regarded as the best choice
and a ton of ppl are gonna tell you to get a dfi lanparty nf4 slid mobo but it really doesnt make a difference wether you get the asus or the dfi ive used both brands before and both work fine.
