I also have a Tiger account, so no worries on the links.

The system looks fine, but I would change:

Windows 7 Professional - Any reason for this? Home Premium has most of the features that Pro does, and it's $40 cheaper

Seagate HDD - Really, a 16MB cache drive is going to slow your entire system down. If possible, get a platter drive with at least 32MB of cache, 64MB if you can wing it, or get an SSD and this drive and use it just for storage.

Any plans to overclock the system?

Well, you can definitely get an SSD for the boot drive, and then use a slower platter based drive for storage. Check out Mwave - I shop there from time to time as well, so I also endorse Vinman's suggestion in that department.

I run a 40GB Intel X-25 SSD at work for boot, and a 750GB secondary drive for my "work" stuff, and it makes a great combo. For reference, I run a set of 150GB Raptors in RAID 0 here at home for my C drive (needed space, 150GB was getting a bit small, don't really need the RAID) and then a couple of other drives (a 750 and a 320) for storage, and it works great. Most of the time the SSD keeps up with the Raptors in terms of system responsiveness, and it was an el cheapo "mainstream" SSD that I chose for my workstation for $99 6 months ago.
