My System Specs

Default

Instead of a 950 get a 930 and overclock it!
NCIX.com - Buy Intel Core i7 930 Quad Core Processor LGA1366 2.8GHZ 8MB L3 Cache 130W 45NM Retail Box - BX80601930 In Canada.
You have a good cooler picked out but if you can make it fit, put on this cooler:
NCIX.com - Buy Noctua NH-D14 LGA775/1156/1366/AM3 I7/I5/PHENOM Heatpipe Cooler W/ NF-P14 140MM & NF-P12 120MM Fan - NH-D14 In Canada.
MemX does have a pretty good deal on the 950:
Intel Core

Also you should get DDR3-1600 ram, my favorite is:
NCIX.com - Buy Mushkin Enhanced Redline Frostbyte 6GB 3X2GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 CL6-8-6-24 Triple Channel Memory - 998805 In Canada.
MemX might have some of this but you have to call and see, I have had good luck with it:
Mushkin HP3-12800 High Performance DDR3 SDRAM, 6GB Triple Channel Kit (3 x 2GB) at Memory Express Computers
Good price here:
Mushkin XP3-12800 Blackline DDR3 SDRAM, 6GB Triple Channel Kit (3 x 2GB) at Memory Express Computers
and here: (different voltage)
Mushkin XP3-12800 Blackline DDR3 SDRAM, 6GB Triple Channel Kit (3 x 2GB) at Memory Express Computers
there are others from Gskill etc that are good also
Make sure you price match

The rest looks good.
