Looks great! I am presuming that you are going to use a HDD as storage device along with the SSD for OS.

decent enough. don't forget a mechanical drive for storage samsung spinpoint f3 1 TB or F4 2 TB will be great

My personal choice would be to spend a little less on a cooler (ex: Hyper 212 Plus) and get a better ventilated case like Antec 902 that would also help keep all other parts cooler. If you plan on using 2 of those 6870, you might also want to consider getting the XFX Black Edition, it's OCed, but also very silent (the later being the interesting point). I know it's going to cost more, but I don't like noise so I though I should say.
