    My comments/suggestions-
    Proc- getting a core2 rig makes more sense, as you are giving sufficient cooling.
    But,If you still want to go amd, gd luck. not bad, but i would rather get a c2d rig....
    Mobo- AMD= then not bad, will suffice.
    Intel= then a nforce6x0 sli mobo that'll suit sli and geforce cards better imo.
    Hdd-very gd, make sure the capacity is enough for ya btw ;)
    Monitor- gd :D
    PSU- awesome, i want one too ;)
    case- Ok, gd one.
    Cooler-look for better if u oc .
    ram- impressive.

    take the e4300 or e6300 if budget constraints you, but after crossing their amd counter parts clock rates, they beat 'em like hell !! and it's like price/ performance ratio is maintained ;)
    Edit: look for Zalman coolers, they''ve got gd ones imo.

    damn! i want to have the kinda money this guy has hahaha...my rig is almost the same except the ram and i cant didnt get the 5600+ because i got the 8800gtx instead of the GTS :p so i went with the 5200+ which in my opinion would do better for you

    but yeah im not really an intel fan but i know there C2D are awesome and all id go with that if anything but if you want to stay with a good machine and get a better card for furture use

    go with the gigabyte mobo AM2 and get the 5400+ or 5200+ and go for the 8800gtx not gts cause well its alot better go look at the comparision charts

    IMO good system but if you get the 5200+ (still has the same cache and all as the 5600+) your better off as its only 200 mhz clocked under the 5600+ and you can o/c that pretty easily if you know how too :p, and than def go for the GTX card not GTS you'll probably be much happier
