Mobo looks fine.
Do you really need a $1,000 CPU?
Don't need 2000MHZ RAM, can go well over 4ghz on 1600 RAM.

These G SKill PI are great, but be aware not all HSF's fit on it. The CM Hyper 212 plus which I recommend you get, does fit.

HD wise you're better off with SPinpoint f3's $90 for 1TB. Or is fact, some SSD's.

GPU, don't bother with factory OC GPU's You're paying them $50 to press 4 buttons for you in ATI Overdrive.

PSU wise don't need anything that high. Grab a nice Seasonic 750W like this one.

Also, do you know what CUDA is, and do you need it? If so you'll have to go nVidia.

1000w isn't really neccesary and get a higher quility brand like corsair. Can you give me a link to that ram? If you want to OC you need a heatsink. can you list prices aswell? Have you considered an SSD?
