This is one last check.
I have asked before on this computer build, though to make sure i want a double check.
$1500 build as follows:

Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz
ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366
G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI
MSI N460GTX Hawk Talon Attack GeForce GTX 460 (x2)
LG WH10LS30K 10X Blu-ray Burner
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB
Linksys WMP600N IEEE 802.11a/b/g, IEEE 802.11n

I am pretty sure it is good to go. this is just so I don't spend $1500, to find out it won't work.
Thanks in advance

The Spinpoint F3 is just a 3Gb/s drive and the black caviar is a 6Gb/s and has double the cache. So, why the Spinpoint when the caviar is only $20 more?

^ HDD -
SATA 6GB/s vs SATA 3GB/s has little or no effect on mechanical HDDs(they have yet to saturate the SATA 3GB/s bandwidth and the SATA 6GB/s is just a marketing gimmick by companies) As for the cache, even though the Samsung has 1/2 the cache, but in terms of performance it is as good or in some cases better...
