Change the monitor to a Asus 24"

Ram To G.skills DDR3 1600/CL:8-8-8-21

PSU: Corsair or PC Power&cooling(red case) 750w is fine.

The P6T deluxe v2 is mostly good for a nice overclock, do you plan on doing that?

Case: RC-690 for a little more room

The BenQ could be fine but, asus is a good brand for Monitors.

XFX is one of the best gpu brands. They offer double life-time warranty, so you are good2go there.

It looks like you did your research, the build looks pretty good.

I'd change the ram though. This Muskin stuff is at 7-8-7-20 timings 1.65v@ DDR3 1600.

Also the case might be a problem for that long card. I heard that they are a really tight squeeze in the Antec 300.

The case might be a problem, are you planning on overclocking?

What's your budget, what country are you in...you could be in China for all we know....do you intend on over clocking...etc... Your build could be a good one, or it could be pure crap depending on your budget and intended needs.

I live in Norway.

I'm not planning to extreme overclock. I want a all-round computer for games, movies. etc.

I don't think the system will be pure crap anyway

What is the cost of the 4870X2, GTX 275, HD 4890 there?

well that Corsair Dominator ram supposed to be good for overclocking. if you look into the recommended G.skill ram make sure its good for overclocking and if is get it because i'm sure it will be cheaper
