Default New PC build

This is my second computer, my first was built on a $600 budget, but this time ive budgeted $2000 because ive become more enthusiast about computer building.

CPU - Intel Core i7 920 Processor BX80601920 - 2.66GHz, LGA 1366, 4.8GT/s QPI, 8MB L3 Cache, Quad-Core, HyperThreading, Bloomfield, Retail Want to build with an i7

Mobo - EVGA X58 SLI Motherboard - LGA 1366, Intel X58, SATA, SLI Ready, CrossFireX Ready, Triple Channel DDR3 support, RAID, Hyperthreading support

Memory - Corsair Core i7 Dominator 6GB PC15000 DDR3 RAM - Tri Channel, 1866MHz (3 x 2048MB), DHX
This one i dont know about, i did alot of research on memory, but i cant seem to find too much recent information.

Case with liquid cooling - Thermaltake Black Kandalf LCS Full-Tower ATX Case with Clear Side, Front USB, FireWire, Audio Ports and Built-In Liquid Cooling System I want to try liquid cooling and seeing as it is my first system i like having it already built in. Ive done alot research and reviews on this case that say it works dectly well. i do know i have to get a special socket for the cpu water block.

Graphics - 2 X EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Video Card - 896MB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0 x16, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, VGA Support

Any suggestions and comments would be helpful

Is there any reason you're buying off of Tiger Direct, what about Newegg?

Ive just always gotten the best service from tigerdirect. I never end up seeing a huge difference in price between tiger and newegg anyway

No need to pay $220 for RAM
OCZ Gold Tri Channel 6GB PC12800 DDR3 Memory - 1600MHz, 6144MB (3 x 2048) at TigerDirect.com

Also I wouldn't recommend buying a case with the water cooling built in.
