New Build For DAW...Advice Please

Whats going on. This will be my 2nd build but I'm switching from AMD to Intel now for audio purposes. Also I get involved with large files dealing with Winrar, Movies, And do some encoding. This machine will not be used for gaming. I already have 2 HDD and everything else but here is the list of what I want to get for my music production. I just want to know if this would work out for me. Not into sampling too much but I do use a good amount of VSTI's, VST's, Reason, FL Studio, Pro Tools 7 M-Powered. I don't plan on overclocking the system. Any advice on any of the components would be appreciated.

    The OP seems fine to me. He didn't copy and paste the guideline verbatim, but all necessary info was there. Edit: Except budget.

    OP:
    Save some cash with this RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145260

    And if you want to use the onboard graphics of the 2500, you'll need an H67 motherboard (not P67). I don't have a specific recommendation at the moment but I'm sure you'll find some if you search the other threads for H67.
