No. Just no. First, the 860 isn't worth it. Either go with the i7-930 or the i5-750 (both would be fine in your case). Second, the board is massively expensive. Third, not only does OCZ RAM really suck for Intel build, but 8 GB is overkill, much less 16 GB. Unless you're trying to crack the human genome again, you don't need that much. Fourth, BR is pretty much pointless for computers right now. Wait for it to be cheaper and have a real use. Fifth, nVidia is getting destroyed by ATI right now. Unless you're doing a lot of work with CUDA (which nothing you posted suggests that), you really should avoid them. Finally, you're picking an expensive tower with a crappy PSU.
Thank you very much for the input. The only thing I would ask you is about the RAM. I understand completely that 16gig is a retarded amount of RAM, but I am regularly held back by the 4gig DDR3 when I try to Vent/MW2/Fraps. Will 6gb really hold me over?
It's a lot of RAM. You could always up that to 12 GB anyway. If you'd rather have more RAM than fast RAM, here are some decent sticks for a good price: Corsair XMS3 3x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $155 after rebate.
I have one last question before I purchase, is the Sapphire 5970 still the right card for me if I want to run on an HDMI? It would just save me a little bit of hassle, but if necessary I could run on VGA.
and among others:
the HDD you recommended
the DVD drive you recommended
and I picked up the blu-ray drive too! as well as an Aerocool Touch 1000 fan controller and 2 blue 200mm megaflow fans and 1 120 rosewill blue fan
