It looks good, the only change I would make is a small SSD for the OS and your Main Programs and maybe a few games.

OCZ Vertex2 60GB SSD

looks good! make sure you get 2 fans on that beefy cooler, it will perform literally 50% better. also try to find combo deals, that could really cut down the overall cost. good luck and keep us updated!
