We can't see your wishlist. Make it public or do a huge copy & paste.

Anywaym looks like you know what you're getting into.

Check out this build as a comparison. Add another 560 ti and Win7 and you have a pretty decent $1300 build.
Swap the sound card for a better case and you're good to go!

Nice build! A few things.
-Get 1600Mhz ram. It's cheaper and a bit faster than the CL7 stuff.
-Dont get the superclocked anything. That can be easily achieved by a simple overclock.
-I would grab a Spinpoint F3. It's same price, but 2/3's the capacity. However, it's MUCH faster.

That's about it! Looks like a sweet build :)
