Hello nutmegman;

It's a good list. Nothing needs changing.
Who is selling you that CM RC-692 Advanced II for $115?

All looks good. I would build this machine for myself. Um, where are you purchasing your parts? The CPU looks a little high.

I noticed the same thing on the case. Canada? Just a guess.

I would recommend the Samsung Spinpoint F3 hard drive over the one you listed. Its only $65 from Newegg for a 1 TB.

For Down Under - those are good prices.

You HDD doesn't need to be SATA III - they can't even use the full bandwidth of SATA II
You can save money and not loose performance there.

Everything looks good.
