Its hard because you havent posted links, or prices and a buget, but here goes. I have tryed to keep costs down.

I would replace that ram with this:

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Replace that motherboard with either of these:

Newegg.com - ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TPOWER X58A LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Everything else seems good, but without prices its hard to say if you can get better deals or now.

Another RAM: Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory - tighter timings, and a great overclocker...

Also check out the EVGA X58 motherboard..

+1 on the ASUS mobo and +1 on the OCZ.

I would also suggest checking out some aftermarket heatsinks if you plan on overclocking your i7 at all.

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Cheap and does a great job.

As much of the bad experiences iv'e had with my old EVGA board, i would recommend this also. All i hear is great things about this board, i just hope they used better quality capacitors and such then the older 680i/780i/90i boards which all had mofset squeals and the 680i had bad FSB "holes". But all in all evga is a great brand and problems can usually easy be sorted with them.

Alot of the problems were caused by the nvidia chipset. I have had no problems with this x58 though. It is a great overclocker and very easy to work with. I had a 680i and a 780i and I had lots of problems with both of them but now I am a very happy camper
