If you want to spend so much on a gaming rig, definately don't sell yourself short. The ram linked is not that great, such as the g.skill due to it having a 1.5-1.6 volt. That means you might have to play with it in bios to get it to even be stable. Plus the timings are pretty bad for DDR3 1600's. Here is a much better set of ram, currently out of stock but stable at 1.5v and tighter timings.

Ram: G.Skill 6GB PI
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo: Asus P6X58D-E or P6X58D-Premium are great options for an I7-930.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... E
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The E is cheaper than the premium, and only lacks a few features.

CPU: For your budget definitely go with the I7-930. Great for games, tasks, etc. One of the best OCing CPUs out there.

GPU: I highly recommend an ATI card over Nvidia. ATI right now gives you much better price to performance ratio. Consumes less power. Generates less heat, etc. I'd say a 5870 or 5970.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 5870
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 5970

PSU: Corsair 750 or 850 would be perfect for you.

Case: Go Haf 922 imo, almost as big as the 932, is cheaper, and just as good airflow. Unless you absolutely want the bigger case. But the difference is marginal.

Don't go watercooling. Air is currently just as effective as water cooling, costs less, doesn't require as much effort, and doesn't need maintenance like water cooling does. Plus, as a general water has a chance to break or leak and then there goes your expensive rig. If a fan breaks just replace it.
