Very nice choices. With assuming the am3+ Board is preparing for bulldozer to replace that 955 then you have yourself a nice build going there

looks good to me, and like the guy above said, you can just drop a new AMD processor in when they release if you need more power.

Wow nice update, the Asus sabertooth is a great board. The caviar black is a better hdd though. The new one might have more space but the black is a faster drive

You are on the right track, everything you have chosen is very nice, but I would still recommend a faster boot drive hdd. You can always buy 2 of them.
