Re: Components selection ?
For CPU I assume you meant i7-950? In which case, don't go for it. Get the i7-920 or -930 instead. There's very little difference, and you can make up that difference for free with inexpert and easy overclocking. Saves several hundred dollars, IIRC.
Same goes for that superclocked GTX480. Get the normal version and overlcock it yourself with EVGA Precision for free.
Instead of the Seagate hard drive, get a Samsung Spinpoint F3. Slightly cheaper and slightly faster.
You'll want to go for 6GB of RAM, 3GB is decent but it's worth going for 6GB.
Other stuff looks good. Are you planning on overclocking at all? Even if not, it's worth getting a decent aftermarket cooler for your CPU, say $50.
