Some pretty good choices for the most part but I wouldn't use a 5900 RPM as your primary - that will be a major bottleneck. If you were using an SSD as your primary and then that as your secondary that's fine.

If there's a store you buy from - knowing local availability will help to suggest parts better.

Good comments from g-unit1111 and catatafish

Don't pay extra for 1.25v ram, faster speeds than 1333 or fancy heat spreaders.
Sandy bridge is insensitive to ram speeds.

I think the motherboard you picked may be more expensive than you need.
Do you really need a full ATX motherboard with 7 expansion slots?
Perhaps a cheaper Micro-ATX with 4 slots would do.

Instead of a hard drive, consider a 60 gb or larger ssd, at least for starters. That is large enough for the os and several games.
You can add a hard drive later for expansion if neded.

I don't understand why you think sata ports will be blocked.
How many do you need? Perhaps only two or three anyway.
