Smile rate my amd build plz

sup guys, could you plz rate this build to give me peace of mind before buying haha. i want to use this computer for gaming, res is 1680x1050, i alreadu have a hd 5850(i think it can still handle games at this res) and a psu a corsair tx650w. I decided to go with AMD because i could get the BEST quality parts for a lower or the same price as intel. Im not from U.S.A., im buying through amazon. I want to overclock if possible.

ASUS crosshair IV Formula (it will be compatible with bulldozer, so that gives me more peace of mind haha and is one of the best AMD motherboards)

ADATA Gaming series ddr3 1600Ghz( were one of the few memories with several good reviews in amazon and quality is good)

Samsung spinpoint F3 1TB

HAF 922 (front 200mm intake fan, top exhaust 200mm fan, back 120mm exhaust fan, side panes 200mm intake fan, and bottom 120mm intake fan) i will get the extra fans i mentioned.

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T( i saw in several reviews that it beated a lot of I7's)

THX guys, any comment will be appreciated!!

I would wait another 2 months before deciding to put my money on an AMD processor. Much better to actually get an AM3+ socket that is 100% sure for future compatibility rather than getting an AM3 socket right now. Not to mention they are using black colored sockets which is very nice.

If on a budget, I'd go with the Cooler Master Hyper 212+. It's around $30 and performs on par with many $80 coolers. If price is no object, I've heard great things about Corsair's self-contained water coolers.

If that is the case then proceed with the build as I don't see anything that bad about it. I'm still waiting for Bulldozer and AM3+ socket though. A few more months of patience won't hurt me but I don't know what is taking AMD so long to release it.
