You have obviously been doing some reading because you have put together a very nice first build. I have just a few suggestions for you to think about.
If you live near a Microcenter store you can pickup a i750 processor for $150.
The motherboard you chose is excellent. However, for $20 more you can get the same motherboard with USB 3.0 and SATA 6 GB/s capabilities (P7P55D-E PRO). USB 3.0 will quickly become mainstream in the next 6 months, and the ASUS MB has a very good implementation with their PLX chip for USB. I think it is worth the $20, but you could always add a USB 3.0 card in the future if you decide to stick with your original choice.
Your memory, hard drive, graphics card, and case are all excellent choices.
Unless you have a specific need for a sound card, such as a DAW, the onboard sound of the ASUS P7P55D PRO system (Realtek ALC889) is excellent. You can always add a sound card later.
To keep your crossfire options open in the future, you will need at least a 650 W power supply. Some good PSUs are Antec EA650 or EA750, or Corsair 650TX or 750TX. If you want to spend a little more, some of the very best PSUs to consider are the Antec TP650 or TP750, or Corsair 650HX or 750HX. Check around for the best deals when you are about to purchase.
You should also consider adding a heat sink fan (HSF) now because it is much easier to install when the motherboard is out of the case. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 is very good, and is only $30. This HSF is much quieter than the Intel stock fan, and it will keep your CPU cool and happy.
Wow, what a major case of deja vu. You should give some time or a bump if your other threads don't get answered immediately... b/c I just responded to your earlier one.
I basically suggested the same things as dpaul, save for the hyper 212+ (which I also do recommend and is within your budget).
I did not see Scotts125 double post before I responded. You are right, the answers in his other thread are very similar to mine. I feel like I just wasted my time trying to help someone. That is frustrating.
Hard Drives - Check out the performance charts and pick whatever 500 GB per platter drive performs best under your usage patterns. The WD Black 2 TB is a good choice but at smaller capacities, you are limited to the Seagate 7200.12 or the Spinpoint F3. The 7200.12 excels in gaming, multimedia and pictures whereas the F3 wins at music and movie maker. See the comparisons here (copy past link in manually, link won't work in forum):
Case PSU - Suggest Antec 900/ EA-650 combo ($179) or at least the Coolermaster Silent pro
