Smile A New Rig I'm Ordering

Hello Hardware Canucks, I'm new around here and I'd like to ask your advice on a new rig that I'll be ordering soon. I'll be ordering it off of already assembled as I have no experience putting together a PC. I'm sure I could do it, but I'd rather let the professional take care of it. Anyways, onto the PC...

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Quad Core Processor AM3 3.4GHZ 8MB Cache 140W $228.27
Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 PWM Pro AM2 S754 $30.26
MSI 790GX-G65 ATX AM3 790GX DDR3 2PCI-E16 CrossFire 2PCI-E1 2PCI HDMI $149.19
Edit: G.SKILL F3-10666CL9T-6GBNQ 6GB DDR3 3X2GB DDR3-1333 $169
Edit: Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 850MHZ 1GB 4.8GHZ GDDR5 $459.50
Edit: Antec Nine Hundred Two Mid Tower Gamer Case 902 ATX 9 $159.16
Seasonic SS-650HT 650W EPS12V 20/24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 80PLUS $83.96
Western Digital Caviar SE16 640GB SATA2 7200RPM 16MB Hard Drive OEM $72.99

With everything included (case, OS, etc.) it comes to around $1600.

I have no preference as far as manufacturers go. For the vcard, I was thinking about an ATI HD5870 instead of the GTX 285. As for the rest, I've picked them through ncix's custom configurator and have no idea if these are the best options for the setup I have here.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Edit: My budget is around $1600 so I'd like to get the best for that money.
