From my point of view, it looks good. I suggest you to buy a different power supply, because of your video card and you have a very nice motherboard taht demands lots of power.

That thing will be super fast, but instead I recommend this motherboard:

Asus A8V Deluxe, VIA K8T800 Chipset:
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...131-510&depa=1

Also, I would recommend getting a case with no power supply, and using this power supply. I think it will be more stable and reliable:

Thermaltake Silent Pure Power 480W
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...153-008&DEPA=0

Otherwise, the system should be EXTREMELY fast and play any game out right now very beautifully. Great choice with the 6800GT by the way.

Well see case-wise, I intended on getting this:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...119-023&depa=1

But it was pricy is hell, and I was going to get the almost the exact same power supply you suggested with it.

I heard that ASUS is blowing lately, so I stayed away from them, although the board does have SATA, unlike ABIT. (i think)

If price is not a problem, stick with the gigabyte. If price is, I suggest the ABIT.

Price is a bit of a problem, but being that it is the MB, and that I planned on getting the gigabyte, I'm willing to stick with it. The power supply and the case on the otherhand I'm kind of second guessing...

Sorry for the double post...

The only thing I would suggest is a different crt monitor. They have flat crt monitors, ones with out the curve to it. They are very nice. Go for one of those, some of those from viewsonic are a bit shallower than the curve ones.
