Exclamation computer building help

ok so from what i've seen through comments on this site and through other sites as well, i've looked at a few certain parts i wanna use for my new computer i'm lookin to build soon. i'm lookin to spend no more then 1300 really for now, so i can put in a few extra hundred later when vista and the dx10 cards come out. so heres what i got so far.

seeing as how most of ur parts are great for overclocking, for processors i would get the Opteron 170, it will overclock REALLY HIGH, im sure with some time it would EZLY beat FX-60 speeds. and the Opteron 170 is significantly cheaper.

as for case, that case comes with its own PSU, get a Case WITHOUT a psu, and get an Antec TruePower II 550watt
