  1. Do not get that RAM as you want the voltage to be 1.65V or below, if you bought that RAM you would have to undervolt it and it would likely not run at it's rated speed. This one looks good to me:

    Everything else looks good to me.
  2. Since you have gaming listed first I will point out the fact that there will be new intel sockets next year. You will have to buy a new motherboard again when you upgrade next.

    If you went AMD you should be able to do a drop in upgrade later. I would suggest using a phenom II 955 which would be basically identical as far as gaming goes. You could also go for one of the six cores.

    Other than that I'll suggest a samsung spinpoint F3 for a hard drive instead of that one. This one should be faster.

    Besides that stuff and the RAM thing Silvune mentioned, that'd be it.
