Fedora 15 uses Gnome 3...
Gnome 2.x > Gnome 3

EDIT:
That is an absolutely insane looking CPU cooler

EDIT2:
Why get a 3D monitor? As far as I know Fedora doesn't support it.

EDIT3: Also you have to be careful about what wifi card and sound card you get.. Fedora may not support all this stuff you're throwing into this.

Oh I see. About your wifi, though.. ndiswrapper has been advancing quite a bit since I first used it, so I really don't think there should be much of a problem, unless it's some no name off brand

There's more to consider than just the wattage (which you've underestimated anyway), there's amperage as well which is equally important.

gtx560ti - 170W
AMD A8 - 100W
Each hard drive - 5-10W
SSD - 5W
Wireless card - 1-5W
Sound card - 5W

Not to mention the RAM, all the motherboard's innards (like the SATA controller and the BIOS and the dozens of other controllers for ethernet, USB, firewire and so on), the fans, and powering that headset, mouse and keyboard, plus any other random peripherals that the computer is powering (like charging mobile devices).

Another reason that you'll want something with a higher wattage is that it doesn't actually have enough connections to plug in everything you want to buy (the GTX56 Ti needs two PCI-E connectors - that current PSU only has one).
