This actually looks like a very solid build. Everything definitely will work well together.

My only suggestion would be to drop down to the non-pro 840 series SSD. I have one of each and don't notice any difference at all between the two. Both are very fast.

Use the $40 you save from that to either upgrade to a larger SSD or a GTX 670.
