I have heard (I think from someone here) that Liquid Cooling that comes with that case is not very good and you're probably asking for problems there, it is advisable to make or pick out better parts for Liquid Cooling. Some of our techs here can help you better on picking out parts for Liquid Cooling.

I also suggest Home Premium than the Ultimate, here's a comparison chart so you understand the features that's not included in Home Premium. Home Premium is around $100.

For a CD/DVD drive, I always recommend the Pioneer drive unless there's features you really want with that AOpen.

For the PSU, I don't trust Ultra and there are better makers than them, I suggest something like Corsair 1000HX, Silverstone Zeus 1200W, or the Silverstone 1200W. Corsair, Silverstone, PC Power & Cooling, Antec are a few good ones to choose from.

I'm not sure with the rest.
Also note that Intel will be releasing a new CPU by the end of this year or early next year called Nehalem. This CPU will not have the same socket like before (the LGA775).

What are your uses for this computer?
