I think your friend has good taste and seems to have a clue.
I think you would be just as happy with this combo deal of the i7 920 and OCZ XMP Memory. Saves you about $50 and is just as good. Click Here Newegg.ca
Keep in mind that you will have to probably change the to XMP Profile 1 in the BIOS for the 1600Mhz speed, it will boot at 1066mhz more than likely, but that is normal. Your friend can help you there.
I've noticed you went with one of the cheaper X58 boards. Maybe with the money I just saved you this board
would be more to your liking. Recently have heard some decent things about it. But... I personally use this board
, and I couldn't be more happy. Almost the same board here
, just less money.
Also, that Corsair power supply is really nice (Corsair=best), but thought I would point out it is not modular, has extremely long cables, tons of them
, and I wouldn't be volunteering my time if I wasn't picky and didn't point that out. Since your case will have a window, I thought I would point that out. Take a look at this modular one
by OCZ. Allows for better cable management, which improves airflow, and a nice clean look. Still 80 Plus Certified, but Cheaper!
Thought I would throw out some suggestions, other than that, everything you have picked is compatible, good quality name brand, etc. I think you will enjoy this computer, very fast. Video card will handle any game you throw at it.
Ask questions, if you dare.
