Is some company building this for you, or are you building it on your own?

You can get better ram than that.
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 3GB (3 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

these are a decent price and have much better timings.

Don't get the p6T deluxe, the regular P6T has more features, for some reason.

Also I would recommend getting a gtx 295 instead of 2 260s.

That case is an utter waste of money. I would look into an Antec 1200 or a Coolermaster HAF.

Also you don't have a psu listed you might want to think what is going to power your pc.

I would get a gtx 285 or 295 over either of those, depending on what resolution you game on.

Heres a great PSU Newegg.com - PC Power &#38; Cooling S75QB 750W ATX12V &#47; EPS12V SLI NVIDIA SLI Certified &#40;Dual 8800 GTX and below&#41; CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Get the gigabyte ex58-ud5 or the evga x58.

I would get this ram Newegg.com - G.SKILL PI Black 3GB &#40;3 x 1GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 &#40;PC3 12800&#41; Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory. Much better than any corsair

I have the Red version of that psu, and it's great.

Fan noise is lower than I thought it would be with just a single 80mm.

And it has no shortage of cables...

Got 2 6-pin gfx, 2 8-pin gfx, 8pin mobo, 4 pin mobo, 24 pin mobo, 3 molex lines, and 3 sata lines.

It's almost too much for my build, Had trouble getting them all out of the way.
