Default How does this look?

I've been messing around with parts for the PC that I'll be building, and this is what I've come up with.

I know it's pricey, but it's christmas season, and that means I can ask my relatives for parts, which will save me $700-$800.

I'm not entirely sure about the motherboard. I was looking at the ABIT IC7-Max3, the one on my wishlist, or the Intel D875PBZ. Your oppinions on that would be helpful.

For my case I'm probably going to get the Lian Li PC-65B, and buy a nice PSU from my brother for cheap.

I'm just wondering what you guys think about this, and if you have any comments/suggestions. Thanks in advace for any replies!

Almost forgot... do you think it'd be worth it to get two 80gb hard drives instead and have a raid

Hmm well that's no good. I changed the link a little... what about now? If I can't figure out how to get it to work, I'll just post the individual items.
