The e6750 is old. Now you can pick up an e8400 up for $200 so thats the CPU to buy. You might also want to look at the MSI P35 Neo2FR, and the 9600GT cards to save you some monies.

That's a freakishly good system you're building. But if finding what parts to order first, here's how I would do it:

1. Case/Power Supply
2. Motherboard
3. CPU
4. RAM
5. Video Card

6. Hard Disk Drive
7. Optical Disc Drive

8. Operating System

1-5 is vital and with those sub-components, you can at least determine if your parts work or not before the OS installation.

Today is yesterday's future....
