It's really easy to build it yourself. It's also really educational.

CPU Cooler: You don't need this until you start overclocking. If you do, I recommend the Coolermaster Hyper 212. It's one of the best coolers, and usually fairly cheap.

HDD: WD isn't a great choice right now. I would get a Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB or 1 TB. It's a lot faster, quieter and cooler. It's also cheaper/GB.

Mobo: Did you look into the Asus P7P55D-E Pro? It's an updated version of that board with USB 3.0 and SATA III support. Generally, it's not that much expensive.

Other than those minor things, it's a good build.
