It all looks pretty good... I only have a few issues, and most of those are personal qualms without practical backing (ie Q6600 instead of Q6700 or a 8800GTS over the 9800GTX - save a good bit of money and have only slightly less performance)

The only definitive thing I have to say is that I'm slightly curious as to why you have an IDE Hard Drive in that list... they run on a slower bus and are generally more expensive than their SATA counterparts
