    Some suggestions.. Don't be offended.
    Get the Antec 900 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129021
    Get Pioneer SATA DVD-burners http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827129032 (or don't, it's not that much of a difference, and I didn't notice LS on the Pioneer)

    I also don't see a CPU cooler?? Are you going to fry your black edition? IT has NO stock HSF.

    You don't need a sound card, but if you insist.. Well, it's better than the onboard. But few would notice any bigger differences, I think.

    Have you checked the memory compatibility at Corsair site?

    For some reason, Phenom Black Editions DO come with coolers...

    ATI 3870 X2? In some games, a single 4850 card is faster... or still just below or above a single 4870card...

    Ditto on the PSU and sound card... But for noise factor - I'd still take a 650watt Corsair (about $100 on newegg) over a PC P&C.
