western digital caviar black 1tb HD

Ocz zx series 850w 80plus gold modular psu

also a cd/dvd burner and a gtx 570 video card. the case will be a cooler master 932 black edition

It all looks pretty solid. I would get an X4 955 with a Hyper EVO and OC it. What is your entire budget?

Definitely not a bad build at all. I just got that same board, I'm planning to install it on Monday.

For optical - any $20 drive will do (although I hate the bulk Asus burners), and for NVIDIA - definitely go with EVGA.

Your CPU is a BE, so I guess you want to overclock. You will want a good cooler. The COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus is highly rated and only 26 dollars. I got the Zalman because it is also very good, but it looks, well, cooler.

Is there anything else that i'm overlooking? maybe an improvement? (somewhere other than the processor or motherboard since i already bought them lol)

The only thing i'd add is an SSD, as long as it's in the budget. Shiny new systems also deserve a shiny new responsive feel to your OS and programs.

I did some looking and decided you were right so i added a 80gb ssd just for my operating system. I also changed the psu to the same line of psu's but upgraded to the 1000w version and changed the video cards to the gtx 580 classified in sli

For just an OS, 30 to 40GB is fine.
I would preferable go for a 60GB SSD.
It will fit your OS, along with other data.

What is your entire budget?
There are many changes you should make if you are getting a pair of high-end cards.

I definitely want it to be under 2000, what do you suggest?
