^^ Nice build,
Some suggestions - I am sure you are planning to overclock right ? Then why the 1090T ? You can get the 1055T to ~4GHz with the right mobo and cooler IMO...
Here is a build with combos that might interest you...

1055T + HD 5850(A very good combo and the 5850 is still a very good card)

RAM - Same

CASE + HDD
CM HAF 912 + Samsung F3 1TB
The smaller brother of the 932, but still offers a lot...

PSU -
Corsair 750HX
$30 off w/ promo code EMCZZZT54, ends 11/22

SSD - Why not one ?
OCZ Agility 2 60GB

And check this cooler -
Thermalright Silver Arrow

Head-on comparison with D14

But if you are not planning to 4GHz+, then IMO this would be a better option
Scythe Mugen 2 Rev.B - With another fan in Push-Pull, would perform nearly as good as the above coolers below 4GHz...

So with the SSD and not sacrificing on any performance, this build is cheaper...
but its your call though...
