Case- is out of stock plus this one is better get from amazon no shipping

PSU- Good Choice

CPU- Get the 955BE instead even with stock cooling you'll be able to overclock it past the 965 speeds it's just a better deal

Mobo- Good Choice

vid card- Good Choice

HDD- Good Choice

Disk Drive- Get this cheaper ASUS instead

RAM- Looks like a great deal but you only really need 4gb for gaming it's your choice though and that is one good deal

OS- good choice

Second Set seems all fine to me :)
