You forgot a case. Unless you already have one. Otherwise good choices.

Looks good bro have fun biulding it. Make sure you get a big case. I made the mistake of getting a mid-tower and its hard to fid a large graphics card and all the cord from the power supply in there. But i have 3 Drives so that could be the problem to.

You should check out the Thermaltake Armor. Not an excessively large tower, but definately has room for all your components.

I've got one and it hasn't disappointed me.
