some comparisons since I just did a new build recently:

case = corsair Obsidian 800D
cpu = intel i7 3930k [6 cores unlocked]
mobo = asus sabertooth X79 [5yr warrantee, 1 old pci slot, up to 64 gb ram on 8 slots]

cooler = corsair H100i [goes right into that case and keeps the cpu below human body temp!]

psu = corsair 1200 ax modular [great power supply IMO]
memory = 64 gb corsair vengance [8 by 8 gb sticks, matched]

ssd = corsair Neutron GTX 480 gb... boot drive
also a couple of 3 tb seagates...

vid card = nvida [EVGA] 650Ti ... good enough for now

Win 7 64 bit OS...

audio card = m-audio profire 2626

Much like you, not planning to do another build for some years now.
...should be fixed for the next build...
