There's a lot of "budget" and outdated components in that build. Unfortunately, with Sandy Bridge defect awaiting being fixed, I can't recommend that you build before April. A 32 GB SSD is way too small. Case and PSU are sized for addition of a 2nd GFX card come Xmas 2011 or 2012 when needed.

PSU - $110 - XFX Black Edition 850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
MoBo - $395 - ASUS P8P67 Pro http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
CPU - incl above - Intel Core i5-2500K http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Cooler - $40 - Scythe SCMG 2100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
