budget?

I'd also recommend getting 8 gigs of the same ram... so get 8 gigs of reaper or 8 gigs of g.skill

wow overdoing it in a lot of places and underdoing it in a lot of critical areas

revise your build

get these instead

q6600
4gb OCZ Reaper DDR2 1000 RAM (that you have listed) don't get two different types, and don't even get 8gb unless you have a massive workstation planned with it
DFI Lanparty DK p35
PSU is overkill: PC Power and Cooling Silencer 610 is enough for you
no Raptor X's: 7200.11 HD's are hte same price and have 3x-5x more HD space
most Benchmarks prove that the HD3870X2 in CrossfireX is not worth it at all, you should just get 1 9800gx2
otherwise the rest is fine

did you already build it? and if you have try to beat Veedubfreak's TF 3dmark06 score

Well you got a Phenom, which are decent, but Intel Core 2 Quad's blow them all away, plus they have those TLB Bugs then theres the RaptorX (refer to my first post) but its still a good Spider Platform Rig

now run 3dmark06!
