Maybe revise your choice, you must consider getting a 29er, it makes such a big difference.
For Sram, if going 2x10, I tihnk X9 would be enough, depending on your practice, but you seem pretty new so it might just do it. I am an elite XC racer and I use a full sram X0 bike, 2x10. If going shimano, Xt or XTR if you have the money.
For me it is clear, next year I'll be on a full shimano bike. The brakes are much more powerful then avid (sram) brakes and the whole components set seems to last longer and be more reliable, less finicky. I have had several sram parts fail on me and I can't afford parts failing when out to a big race 900km away from home.
For fork, I rode both fox and rockshox and I personnaly think fox is much more smoother. Im not sure what other major differences there is between both brand.
Wheels, just go light, 1500-1600g should be good. Then use some good tires, as it makes a big difference in MTB riding.
