You don't need the triple channel ram as Sandy bridge is dual channel. You should get a dual kit of either 4GB or 8GB.

Antec Nine Hundred = dust trap.
There is a lot of better case out there.

Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALS 1TB
Change it for a caviar black 640Go (same price).
You don't really need this change, the caviar blue is still pretty good and make less noise.

GTX 470
Maybe a 6870, cost less, perform a little (really little) bit worst, consume a lot less, run cooler, run quieter.
Or a 6950 if you have more money to put.
