Default Does this build work?

Hey All,

This is my first attempt at a build. I have helped a couple friends with their builds but this is my first shot.

1. Thermaltake ArmorPlus(Armor+) VH6000BWS Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

2. XFX Radeon HD 5870 850MHZ 1GB GDDR5 4.8GHZ 2XDVI HDMI Display Port DIRECTX11 PCI-E Video Card

3. Intel Core i7 920 Quad Core Processor LGA1366 2.66GHZ Bloomfield 8MB LGA1366 4.8GT/S

4. ASUS P6T SE X58 ATX LGA1366 DDR3 LGA1366 3PCI-E16 PCI-E1 2PCI CrossFire SATA2 Motherboard

5. Corsair XMS3 TR3X6G1600C9 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 9-9-9-24 Core i7 Memory Kit

6. Corsair TX950W 950W CMPSU-950TX 12V 78A 24PIN ATX Active PFC 140M Fan Power Supply

7. AuzenTech X-PLOSION Cinema 7.1 Sound Card DTS Connect Dolby Digital Live Sound Card PCI 32BIT

8. Western Digital WD1001FALS Caviar Black 1TB SATA2 7200RPM 4.2MS 32MB 3.5IN Dual Proc Hard Drive OEM

9. 2 - DVD burners from old PC. 24 speed.

10. Windows 7 64 bit

Thoughts? Any thing I should be concerned with in terms of power, cooling, or otherwise? Will be primarily a gaming PC, but would also like to use it to stream video to my media center.

Adding a couple notes*

I could potentially overclock...not that I think its extremely necessary right now, but would be nice to have the option. I am a proud canadian on the East Coast and intend on getting all my parts via a local supplier (Greenlyph - Halifax) I did bench mark all prices on NCIX and Newegg - but like to keep it local if possible. Budget isn't a huge concern but would like to try and stay under 2k.
