Any of these parts not belong with the rest?

This is my first build so I figured I'd see if these parts make sense. I'm using it for coding mostly, and a little bit of gaming. I was told not to be cheap about the PSU and I want it to be able to handle anything I add on later, but is this one totally overkill? Also does anyone have thoughts on whether I should wait until Zambezi comes out before I buy the Phenom, in case there are price drops? I also don't have a case picked out yet, so I'm taking comments on that too.

Phenom II X4 955
GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 Motherboard
MSI R6850 Cyclone PE Radeon HD 6850
Team Elite 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
PC Power and Cooling Silencer 910W
Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive

Since you don't have a Case and Optical drive yet

get this, it's a pretty good case and with the combo you save $10 bucks.

Get this, CPU + GPU combo. Same price but better GPU than you have now.

Get this PSU + HDD since you don't have one

If you already have an HDD, get this PSU + Ram combo, better than yours.

Just check the recommendations I already said. :) 

You also need an HDD. Get the first 3 recommendations and post again what you have changed to your build.

for upgradability use 1.5 volt RAM . Future generations of processors are prone to damage from higher voltage RAM
