Get 1866MHz RAM, there is a noticeable performance difference, and I wouldn't get a Spinpoint HDD, I would go with a Seagate Barracuda. And the 950W PSU is way overkill, even with 2 GPUs, so if you could get one that is more then 750W for less money I would go with that. Also if you have a little more money I would get a modular PSU because it will be easier to build with and will improve airflow because there won't be as many cables.
