Looking for feedback on my PC build components.

I'd like to get some feedback on my future computer build. Here's my wishlist:
Also, here's a couple items I'm planning on getting that are not on Newegg:
Unicomp Customizer 104 keyboard - $69.00
Ceton InfiniTV 4 digital cable quad-tuner card - $399.00
I'm planning to build this late December/early January when I move back to the States. It's going to be my first time building a PC in a decade, but it doesn't look like much has changed. I want something fairly basic but with long-term upgradabilty, so that's why I choose a more premium case and keyboard and a full-size ATX motherboard with good on-board video so I don't need a separate GPU to begin with. I'm not PC gaming at the moment, so I doubt I need one.
I'm going with AMD to save some cash and it because it looks like it should be easy to upgrade to Phenom II or similar later if I want more power. I'm planning to also use the LCD for my Xbox and with the InfiniTV card I should be able to save myself the cost of a new TV.
