Couple changes I'd make:
I think the Spinpoint F3 is faster than the Caviar black, and you can probably find it cheaper too. The Caviar Blacks seem to be a little pricier than competing drives.

I wouldn't go with a GT200 card; outdated hardware. Go with a 5770 (though a 5850 or two is more fitting to the performance of the CPU). If you're set on Nvidia, I'd say wait it out until Fermi.

I'm generally not a big fan of Antec, so I'd say go with the Corsair TX750 if you go for a 5770 (or HX850 if you can afford it if you go for a 5850 or Fermi; a 750W is more than enough for a 5850, but might as well give yourself some headroom in case you do two or three GPUs).
"If dancing is sure to result in failure then you must dance anyway."
Lo Mein said that, and I think he knows a little more about dancing than I do pal, because he invented it! Then he perfected it so that no man could best him in the club of honor.
Then he used his prize money to buy two of every whore on Earth. Then he herded them all onto a boat, then they all beat the crap out of every single one of him.
