Default Custom Build: i7, Asus Sabertooth P67, Lian Li Lancool

I've been planning to build my own PC for a while and finally sat down to get my components list today. I want something good with graphics, for 2d and 3d graphics work and some gaming, and plan on dual booting Ubuntu and Windows 7. Any advice as to things I've forgotten about or things that won't work together would be appreciated.

Code:
Graphics:      MSI N9800GT OC (I have this already, from my last desktop)
Case:          Lian Li Lancool PC-K7B
Processor:     Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4GHz
Motherboard:   Asus Sabertooth P67  Rev 3.0
Memory:        Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600
PSU:           Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W (I have this already too)
Optical Drive: Samsung CD/DVD Burner
Hard Drive:    Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB
Thanks for the help!

Depending on the games you're playing you may want to look into a new GPU.
While the 9800GT can still hold its own with certain games, most of the stuff recently released and coming out may slow down on it.

I figured I might have to do that in the future. I don't have many new PC games right now, most are for my XBox. I might get Battlefield 3 for PC when it comes out though, and upgrade then.

This setup looks like it will work though? Nothing will not work with something else?

Nope, looks like everything will mesh well.
I would suggest dropping down to 8GB of RAM though, 16GB should be overkill for your purposes.
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM
Saved money can go in the new GPU/BF3 fund

Awesome, thanks a lot. I just placed the order and dropped the RAM a bit. My laptop has 2 and meets most of my needs for now, 16 probably would have been more than I need.
