Could always get a dual core phenom and unlock it to a quad save a few pennies, spend the cash elsewhere.

About the mockup, here are some alternatives:
*HDD: Samsung F3 ITB instead of the 0.5TB WD (same price)
*Processor: depending on the budget and wilingness to OC you may get
- a Phenom II 925 (that with regular HT OCing can reach about the same speed as a BE)
- a Phenom II 955BE that is only 200MHz slower aka 17x multi in stead of 16x
- a 1055 x6 for 10$ more than the 965 X4 - Thuban is known to OC better than Deneb
*GPU: I'm not too convinced about the 460SE, a 460 w/ 768MB is faster.
