    you have some good parts there...

    RAM -> 8gb will soon become the new "standard"... and it has never been cheaper than it is lately... take advantage and get 8gb now... and occupy only 2 memory slots (with a 2x4gb kit)

    keyboard -> that would be your preference (i like Microsoft keyboards personally)

    speaker -> budget?

    GPU -> 6870CF will obviously outperform 6850CF... but the latter will be better 'bang-for-your-buck' (and use less power)... as for the 560... no official benchmarks yet... soon (i think tomorrow or something)
