That is a very nice build.

As for the mouse and keyboard, I was never one to spend a lot of money on a keyboard or mouse, all keyboards type the same and all mice work the same.

I'd just like to say something. It seems from the video card that this PC is for gaming. The new E8*** series would be better suited to your needs as almost all games aren't threaded for quad cores so a dual core would give better performance. Also the the new 45nms overclock as high as 4.2GHz. This is a good choice: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115037
Apart from that, I'm really liking the rest of the build including the 750i mobo. Sure, it can't reach the FSB speeds of a P35 or an X38 but you get PCI-E 2.0 and the full 16 lanes when doing SLI. BTW, the link to the 8800GT is actually of your PSU.

Looks like a great build to me. Case looks interesting, too.

As for the keyboard/mouse combo, do what you're comfortable with. I used to always use Logitech's wireless desktops for my computers but I got their cheapest keyboard/mouse in the mail with my order. They felt 100x better IMO than my wireless combo. I've recently gone back to using the wireless one, but I don't like the loose keys on this keyboard, and something about the spacing really bothers me.

I'm getting used to it, though. ^_^

For the 8800GT, you might want to have a look at the Gainward as it has an improved cooler which really benefits the 8800GT.

There's no reason to get that motherboard whatsoever. Especially if you're not even gonna use SLI. Get a P35 chipset, you'll be much better off. This is an amazing board:

Or if you want to save some money, this:
