Speccing a new PC

It's a slow afternoon and I'm dreaming up some upgrades that I shouldn't really be spending money on...

So whilst I'm dreaming up my ideal build, that I could potentially purchase.. I want to know what others would change, or think about it?

I'd OC the CPU to whatever I can get 3.8/4ghz?

That's a lot of money and you haven't listed a power supply.
I would go with a quality brand 850W minimum;)

I already have 2 x 750gb hdds, 850w psu, dvd-rw and coolmaster case. :)

I'm thinking of doubling the ram up to 12gb as I do use a lot of 3d rendering software... and it'll just be nice.

But i will have to check the PSU I have now.. to make sure it has connections
