Ok so.

Change mobo to P5K deluxe

Change power supply to Corsair 520HX or Pc power and cooling 610.

I would change the DVD drive to an LG sata.

For your fan get this

Newegg.com - SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan - Retail

looks great thanks on the information.
this is the email i sent support. hopefully everything will work out
"Sorry for your inconvenience. I spotted a huge mistake on my order, and would like to exchange several parts. The item numbers of the parts I would like to exchange are as follows : N82E16827106055, N82E16817341002, N82E16811999122, N82E16813127033.
a total of $403.96
The items I would like buy instead are :
N82E16827136120, N82E16817139001,
N82E16813131182, N82E16835226013.
total of $387.96
Now my question is will I be charged extra for exchanging? and is the difference in my price sufficient enough to cover for your inconvenience?

thanks in advance. I will call in the mourning to further discuss this matter."

I did not see an OS, hope you have one to install. Other than that, looks like a great system, I just finished building mine and it screams compared to my old XPS Dell. Well, almost finished, I still have a few things to add and change and then OC it.

Why would you replace the abit x38 with a p5k? The abit board is hot. ITs actually going to be my next board once i get my hands on a pair of cheap 3870s.

Because P5K is better for overclocking and Abit does not make always the greatest stuff.

Meh, my p5k didnt overclock all that great, although it was just the vanilla version. I much prefer my ds3r and 680i boards.
