Is it necessary to get 16GB of ram? For gaming, 8GB of ram is plenty. Also do you really need a pre-made cooling cooler? You also forgot the operating system.

That will work, you still need a hard drive, OS, and optical drive. There really is no need for 16GB on a gaming PC unless you also run some data intenstive programs. Two SAPPHIRE 100312-3SR Radeon HD 6950 Dirt3 Edition 2GB cards will provide greater performance and will cost less money. That motherboard will not support two graphics cards at full 16X speeds, regardless of whether or not you use SLI or Crossfire. However, 8X should still be enough.
