Why_me's build is great for the current market. If you are buying in a month or so I'd look out for motherboards based on the Z68 chipset. It may not make much of a difference performance wise but it could be a big deal. we have to wait and see.

Also AMD may have Bulldozer out. If it is out see how it compares to the Intel line. We don't really know how Z68 or Bulldozer will perform so it is a good idea to just keep your eyes open and know that some changes may come and hopefully they will be for the better. If not you will be very happy with Why_Me's suggested build
