Solid build and no major issues to point out. Your links are broken so can't 100% review each component.

If this is a gaming build (only & no CS5/CAD type work... etc), you could drop down to the i5 750 & ASUS P7P55D-E Pro and 4GB of RAM to save close to $200 roughly with no major FPS lost.

It is a primary Gaming build, but I will be doing some moderate to heavy CAD work on the computer at times when I have custom orders that come in. Plus I also plan to Crossfire with another 5870 probably in 4-6months. But I am glad that everything looks good, I'm going to go ahead and purchase this build and let y'all know how it works out.
