This is a drastically overpowered system for scanning pictures and not doing any gaming or other enthusiast activities.
Case: Good, that's a nice, solid case.
CPU: I have no idea why you would need this processor if you're not gaming since the i7 920 is near the performance of less expensive processors. I suggest the AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz
since you're not gaming. It too is a quad core CPU with a high clock speed and a lower price.
Motherboard: That is an enthusiast board meant for high-end gamers or people who intend to overclock their PC's. If you go with the processor I suggested, the ASRock M3A785GXH/128M AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
is a solid choice and is $150 cheaper. However, if you insist on keeping the i7 920, the ASRock X58 Extreme LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
would be a less expensive alternative.
Graphics Card: That GPU is old and has recently been rebranded as the GTS 250. If you want to go ATI, the SAPPHIRE 100279-1GL Radeon HD 4870 1GB
offers greater performance at a similar price. If you are going to be using two monitors, your graphics card will need at least 1GB of video memory, which the ATI card has.
Power Supply: Good choice, Corsair is an excellent brand. However, if you want to use Crossfire or SLI at a later date, usually used by gamers, you would need a better one with a higher wattage.
RAM: That will work, if you want to fill up all RAM slots you will need two of those kits. If you want the AMD system I suggested, you can purchase two Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
memory kits and get 8GB of RAM. If you are going to use video editing software, it can take advantage of large RAM amounts if they have been designed for 64-bit operating systems.
Hard Drive: That will work, though the Western Digital Caviar Green WD5000AADS 500GB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive
has greater cache for added performance and is only a few dollars more expensive.
Everything else looks fine. For scanning in pictures, one monitor should work out fine. I suggest just getting a good single 24 inch monitor, like the ASUS VW246H Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor
