Looking like a good basis for a rig but for gamming as you require some considerations should be made.

The inclusion of a SATA HDD in the 200Gb range or two in RAID 0 if that is your want.
The GPU eventhough the X850XT is a good card the X800GTO2 would afford you some fine performance once unlocked and would exceed the X850XT's performance.
It is also for consideration that the DirectX 10 GPU's will be available soon.


cheers
