Default New Build ??

What do you think of this build. I am taking my time and will be buying over the next 4 months.

as of now I have the case and P/S.

Case: Artec 900.
P/S: Ultra X-4 1050 watt.

Future
Asus crossfire IV Mb.
AMD Phenom II 1100 black edition.
Crucial 256 Gb solid state drive.
Plextor PCB940 blu ray writer.

I plan on having 16 Gb of mem, but will start with 8 Gb.
and no idea on video card.

So help, I want best mem available. as far as video I will spend up to $300.00.

For a GPU, i quite like this

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100312-1GSR Radeon HD 6950 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card


and memory, Newegg.com - CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory with Airflow Fan Model CMT8GX3M2A2000C9 ?


EDIT: actually, could you post the actual motherboard you intend to get? It's hard to find memory without knowing the board, and i think i may have been a bit optomistic on the DDR3 2000 :P
