Your build is lopsided on a few items. It also has overly expensive items like the DVD-RW and it has items that arent needed like the Sound Card.

Also at $2000 I'd have an SSD boot drive at least.

^ Yup, actually you wont need 2K for a very good gaming build,...
The above build comes to ~$1400, so you can actually add 1 more GTX 470 in SLI too without going over budget...

Awesome list! but Why would you go with the XFX 750W - Modular power supply rather than a CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V?
