Looks ok to me. Why don't you buy from newegg, instead of TigerDirect?

For watercooling, look over at Petra'sTechShop.com

I just happened to be looking for something on TD and I was like I guess I should probably design my new build. So Im going to go with whoever is cheaper. So I don't know who I'm going with yet.

not even that much... a Corsair 520 is enough... even if you overclock..

ack!...Didn't see the 1000W PSU.

Newegg has a lot more choices, and is usually cheaper, if not, always.

Pick from these choices of power supplies:
Corsair 520HX
Corsair 550VX
Rosewill RP550
XCLIO Greatpower 550

edit:

Here is that CPU OEM from ClubIT:
ClubIT Product - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 Stepping Kentsfield 2.40GHz 8MB L2 LGA 775 Processor OEM HH80562PH0568M SLACR
....If you are getting the OEM version, you need an aftermarket heatsink. Such as:
Newegg.com - Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler - Retail
...and thermal paste:
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING MX-2 Thermal Compound - Retail

XFX nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 Barebone Kit - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.40GHz OEM, ATX Full-Tower Case, 600 Watt Power Supply at TigerDirect.com

that barebone is noteworthy... except that stupid PSU..

here we go.. the speech about the Myth that the Wattage matters...

Wattage doesn't matter.. Dual 12V Amperage does.. because some of the crap PSU's have their rails on the lower V rails... resulting in the high voltage... meaning its gonna crap out.. with a high end system

They're in the 550W range. And I'm sure they're enough, because they have plenty of amps to power any high end system. The power is not in the wattage.

But here's another suggestion:
Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 EPS12V EPS12V 610W Continuous @ 40°C Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, cUL, CE, CB, TUV - Retail
