What are you needs and wants for this build? Gaming it looks like?

I'd stick with the 285 that you have up there.
I would change the board to the ASUS P6t noted above.

Unless you plan on overclocking you probally can get away with the stock heatsink & Fan.

Sorry yes the system will be used for gaming mainly as I'm playing aion at the moment.

I also do a lot of web work if there was any other 22" monitor you could recommend over the Samsung. I would be open to suggestions.

It's a beautiful build but i'm slightly biased :p . I like sticking w/ the 285 will cover anything you throw at a 22" monitor and will eliminate the need to SLI in the future. That being said you can downgrade the PSU to something more in the range of one 285.

Yeh i was thinking of keeping the psu tho since i plan on adding more hds and dvd drives at a later date.
