Default How'd I do on my build?

Here's what i got:

Monitor: 22" Samsung T220

CPU: Intel Core i7 920

Mother Board: Asus Deluxe x58

GPU: EVGA Gtx 260 Core 216

Memory: 3x1gb g.skill ddr3 1600

Hard Drive: Western Digital Cavier Black 640gb

PSU: PC Power & Cooling 750w

Case: Antec 900

DVD Drive: Samsung Dvdr

It all came out to about 1185 after I get all my rebates. What do you all think?
Also, anyone know of any good coolers for the i7, for a reasonable price? The few I saw were expensive and poorly reviewed. I'm thinking I'll just wait a bit on OCing until there is more on the market.

I would suggest the Antec Twelve Hundred over the 900, I think they are a bit more roomy and will allow your computer to run all around better.

As for the Core i7, I would keep the intel cooler until a stable heatsink came around.

Also get the - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies
Over that PSU. That is if you have your mind set up on a 750W, which is more then enough for what you require.

Well the reason I went for the mid tower is space will kind of be a concern of mine. I'm in college so I'll have this rig in a dorm room for a while then I'll be living in a smallish apartment.
