The plan is to keep the final price under $2500 (including S&H and warranties, but preferably closer to $2000 if I can). I also plan to SLI the GTX 580 in the future, and OC the processor to suit my gaming needs.
Any thoughts? Thanks!

There is probably a better SSD available at about the same price as well, but I'm no expert in SSD's so I'm sure others can give you pointers on the SSD.
Probably a OCZ agility 3 or so would be better.
Otherwise looks to be pretty solid, unless you intend to SLI the 580GTX at some point, then you could use a little bit more juice for your PSU since 850W is borderline for the OC'd 2500k and 580GTX SLI.
The Azza Solano doesn't have native support for 2.5" drives, so make sure the one you get comes with an adapter (or buy one or figure out some other mounting solution), IIRC the Crucial C300s don't come with such an adapter.
Maybe something to bear in mind is that the HDD installation system in the Azza is not going to be the easiest once the whole build is completed, so it would be more difficult to install more HDDs later in that case than in some other cases.
get a crucial m4 128gb ssd for 220$ it is faster and cheaper.
also get gtx 560 ti sli or 6950 2gb cf it is cheaper and gives a lot better performance than a single gtx 580. even though in sli it will give better performance there will soon be something better out and you will fell bad about dropping 1000$ on gpu's when you can buy something better for 300$.
