Alot of the componets you have listed are on the very bleeding edge, if you scale back some and employ some overclocking you can acheive better performance for a drasticly lower cost

Good advice. More expensive does not always equal the best choice. It's like having to drive the most expensive sports car... other than bragging rights there is really no point to it.
