I wanted to give an updated post on my current build plan. I'm pretty sure I'm going to purchase this within the month, but wanted to get some last thoughts and suggestions from knowledgeable people.

I will be overclocking a little most likely. My monitor resolution will be 1920x1200. I will add another Radeon HD5870 in the future.

Everything looks good to me :) 

I would go with this RAM over the A-DATA RAM for better performance.
G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI

Also, make sure to check Newegg combos for additional savings!!

Thanks for the memory suggestion. See anything else that I can replace with something better for a small price increase?

The only thing I would do is look at one of these XFX ATI HD5870 over the ASUS card. Two are factory OC's and a similar card for less money.

I'm looking for i7 920 or a 930 really. I was wondering where I can find a 920 with D0 stepping. Is that standard or do I need to find it specifically?

I have officially purchased my components. All in all the components added up to less than $1500. I plan on taking pics and giving a small review of the build once it has been completed. Thanks go to the various couple of posters(this thread and another) who gave great suggestions!
