Default Final build looking for suggestions!

So now that Ive got most of my money together I want to see what you guys think of this...

Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE TJ09-BW Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
q6600
evga 8800 ultra
2gb crucial ballistix
corsair 520 psu ( I posted a while back and was recommended to get this and that it would power up anything no problem but now that I bought it Iam having doubts.)
sony nec dvd drive
gygabite p35 ds3r ( I need some help with the mobo... Is this still a good mobo? Is there better for around this price range?)
seagate barracuda 320gb
for the cpu cooler iam not sure, Iam trying to decide between the tuniq 120 and tt ultra extreme


Open to any suggestions... looking forward to your replies.

well its a bit on the pricey side... but if you can afford it i guess you can go for it.. but the 690 has a lot of fans from what I've heard.. and a lot of people like it ....

also if your willing to spend that much on a case look into a Coolermaster Stacker 830 Black.. its got decent looks and works great with water cooling... (if you want that in the future)
