Looks OK to me. Don't foresee any compatibility issues.

Just want a clarification here - you have already bought and assembled this system, yes?

What are your applications / uses for this machine?

The FirePro line of cards is meant for professional users who run demanding 3D, CAD and simulation applications. For gaming, these cards are worse than any standard GFX card (Geforce / Radeon) at a similar price point.

It made me chose a sub-cata but i have not built it yet, i want to know what gpu is better because theres a special on the ATI FirePro V7800 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFire Supported Workstation Video Card. Also this computer will be based on gaming. so i would be using it for games.

^I think you mean i7-2600K, not i5.
I second all the components except the motherboard and the Samsung drive. ASRock motherboards have only 1 year warranty vs. 3 years on Asus / Gigabyte / MSI. Personally, I don't buy Samsung drives because they seem to have problems ejecting after a year or so. Take a LITE-ON or a Sony.

For the GPU and CPU, have a look at these articles:
