Overall everything looks good. I am not going to talk about the video card but the other things that you have listed. Was there a reason why you choice Windows 7 Ultimate? For most people they find that they don’t need the language support (the main difference between Pro and Ultimate). You can see the differences here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7_versions. Otherwise it looks like you are going to have a very nice system.
That GTX570 is a beast of a card. 3 slots! That might make it difficult to SLI in the future. You could step down to a GTX 560 Ti for about $100 less. Or you could go with a HD 6950 2GB for about the same price as that 560Ti. It (HD 6950) performs better than the 560Ti and almost as well as the 570, while using less power.
