^ Yes...It is very good...
And just make sure you buy the open cooler type and not the closed one as that one runs hotter than the open cooler one...
Any other changes would be just nitpicking here...

and if it going to be a pure rendering build, why not consider a workstation card ?

^ Then its fine...
And change the PSU to Antec EA 650W - It cost about $74 and will allow for future crossfire of the HD 5770...

The PSU them selves just provide the power to the system, to crossfire 2 graphics cards you are going to need a little more power than u have already. a 650W PSU will provide enough power for this expansion in the future without having brought 1 PSU now and then a more powerful one later costing you more than u need too.
