Decent build, but I'd recommend a few changes.

Get a smaller PSU. 500W is plenty for a GTX560Ti. Get the Antec Earthwatts 650W from Amazon for just $60.

Go for the X4 955, and used the saved $$ to get a GTX570 or HD6970.

The Hyper 212 Evo is considered a better cooler than the N520.

Thnx for the insight as far as the power supply it was more of a future investment and i was wondering if i should be looking to get a 2gb video card for more vid memory demanding games for the future.
