Welcome to the forum. It would be best if you filled out the Build Advice form in my signature first, but here's some changes to consider.

CPU:
  • Intel Core i7 930 -$289-
    MOBO:
  • Asus P6X58D-E -$240-
    RAM:
  • Mushkin Enhanced Blackline -$180-
    GPU:
  • Asus Radeon HD 5850 -$320-
    PSU:
  • Antec TP-750 -$120-
    HSF:
  • Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus -$27-

    The 930 is a bit faster than the 920 and it's only a few dollars more.
    That motherboard has support for some newer features.
    The RAM linked above will be just as good for cheaper
    You may want to consider the 5850 for a bit less cost, heat, power consumption, and noise.
    Then, the Antec PSU is better quality than the Kingwin.
