Rate my build? (And what motherboard should I get?)

Just thought I would do one of these, and see the reaction.

CPU: AMD Phenom II 965
RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws 8gb (2x4gb) 1600 (PC3 12800)
GPU: EVGA Superclocked GTX 560 (Fermi)
Case: Cooler master CM690 Mid-tower (not advanced version)
Mobo: Main reason I did this. What motherboard should I get? I consider myself familiar with most other computer parts than the mobo. I don't really understand what makes a good motherboard.

Accessories:
Headset: Corsair Vengeance 1500 7.1
Mouse: Cooler Master Recon gaming mouse
I'm also thinking of getting a Microsoft Sidewinder X4 keyboard. my current keyboard is alright, though, my only real problem with it is that it isn't backlit.

Reccomendations? Criticisms? Any help will be appreciated! Thanks

You're spending too much on peripherals and not enough on your crucial components.
