the stuff you picked out may look nice, but I would reconsider some of your choices (except the MB/CPU/GPU) (good choice on the GPU)

I know your a little over you budgetm but you didn't go cheap on the GPU, so don't go cheap on the PSU get a good solid one (corsair, Antec, Seasonic, Silverstone). here is a combo deal that gets you a good PSU and the same RAM but CL8. comes with $20 MIR

if you think you might Xfire later on, you will need a even better PSU. here is a good combo for that:

Also here is a better case, unless you just are in love with one you picked out (I call it the Zombie case):
Zalman Z9 $50
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

for +$20 you get the same case +2 more fans (blue LEDs) and a built-in fan controller.
Z9 Plus
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also you can get a faster and larger HD
Samsung 500gb 16mb cache 7200rpm $50
