- CPU: I like processors having a low thermal design power, whenever 
possible (<=65W).

- Motherboard: Tyan is one of the bests MB manufacturers out there. 
Indeed, targeted to high-end workstations and servers.

- RAM: Just buy a combo of brand/model recommended (tested and certified) 
by the MB manufacturer to avoid problems.

So overall, I find your selection very good :-)
