Is that PSU/Case combo from newegg? I don't think the CP-850 can fit in the ninehundred two case. You have to get the 1200 for that I'm pretty sure, like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.177160

You should just get the 920 instead of the 940, the 940 is a waste of money because the 920 can OC just as well for $200 less. Get a CPU cooler like the CM V8 or TRUE and OC the 920, its pretty easy to do.

Get the 640gb Caviar blacks, they are faster and larger for not much more.

This is a better mobo+ram:

You need an OS too, don't forget that.

You can also use the Antec P183 or P193.

Its faster ram. It doesn't have a fancy heatsink on it, but it will run at faster timings. If you want to OC then the dominators might be better, but unless you are going over 1650mhz then I would use the OCZ set. The Mobo is definitely better.

I'm a game designer, I mainly program I might model soon. I'm going around 2000 dollars but it is extremely loose (this is being taking from a very fortunate inheritance)

My main fear is cooling, popping it all up and everything overheating and such. Also I read an article on all x58 motherboards here and there all the same pretty much but the p6T was a bit faster at the cost of running the hottest

Yes the P6T does get hot, not the P6T Deluxe V2, it has very good cooling. i7 memory kits do not get as hot as other ram kits because they run at lower voltage, 1.65v. The old standard 1.8-2.2v produces much more heat. I wouldn't worry about it overheating unless you are going for a very high OC of the ram.
