For Christmas this year I'm going to build a new computer, and this is what I have so far. Before I purchase it though I want to make sure that I'm getting the most out of my money. If anyone has any comments or suggestion that would be fantastic, thank you!

Is it possible you could wait until Intel's Sandy Bridge series comes out in January 2011? This would definitely be the wisest choice.
