Looks excellent however since u will play @ 1920x1200,a single GTX 295 will suffice.
Also for PSU(if u get a single GTX 295)get a Corsair 750W and save some bucks

Drop the Xigmatek PSU and get one from Corsair, Antec(Earthwatts), PCP&P, Seasonic.

295 SLI is overkill. A single 295 is plenty enough for your needs.

I would agree with masterjaw drop the Xigmatek and get a unit he listed. I use PC-Power and Cooling and love them. On the GPU get a single GTX 275 and if later you feel you want more power do SLI. I think a single 275 or even a 285. But a 275 would do more than you need at that res. ;) 
These are great and even in SLI will be more power than you need. :D

CPU Cooler's
CoGage True Spirit Heatpipe CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Silent Fan for Intel LGA1366 $37.95
(It is similar to the ThermalRight and cools within 1 or 2 degrees' of it.)

If you do get the CoGage True Spirit, I would suggest this Mounting Bracket, instead of the Push-Pin one that come with it.
Thermalright LGA1366 Bolt-Thru-Kit Retail BOX Bolt-thru Board Mounting kit $9.95

If you want one of the Best CPU HSF Cooler for the Core i7 then I would suggest this one, but it is more expensive.
Thermalright Ultra120 eXtreme-1366 RT Premium Heatpipe Cooler for Intel LGA1366 $74.95

One of the latest Reviews on 1366 CPU HSF Coolers'.

Thermal Compound.
ARCTIC COOLING MX-2 Thermal Compound - Retail $7.98
