Lets lower and higher some stuff.

I7 920

Asus P6T Deluxe V2

card is good if its your liking

Get triple channel Memory: OCZ Platinum 3x2gb DDR3 1600

WD Black 640gb is all you'll need

Reader is fine unless you would rather have an LG 22x DVD

600w will not function a gtx 295.

850tx PSU

The case, Coolermaster RC-690 will be just fine or go with a full tower.

what games do you play?

dual Xeon quads are only worth it if you play FSX since your using up half the threads that it can use vs 1/4 with a i7 9xx.

next the perf. enhancements of a 940 over a 920 are very little, best idea would be to get an i7 920 D0 and a high-end cooler and OC to above 4ghz which seems to be an easy feat for D0 processors.
