that all looks good, except for one detail i think i might point out,

XFX (according to most testimonials i have heard) dont product work of the highest quality generally.

i'd recommend a Corsair PSU (since i know they're good) and a Sapphire or ASUS GPU (which i also know are good)

Agreed with Darkseeker. Corsair is probably your best bet. Even Cooler Master and Antec are better choices for PSU. And Asus for GPU. They can be a little more expensive at times but there's no comparison on quality.

I would say though, if you're just doing hardcore gaming and your not going to be using your rig to graph the weather for the next 100 years or your doing some serious audio visual stuff, you'll get better performance at a much better price if you go with an AMD X6 CPU and an Asus AMD mobo.
