Get the 1.5V Cas9 1600mhz Gskill snipers, they are the same price and faster.

Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB instead of the WD HDD. About the same price, faster, bigger.

Get the Hyper 212+ from $30 bucks or so.

Kinda odd you have this massive case and are putting a microATX MB in it, maybe check for a similar regular size MB.
Especially if you plan on SLI later on for your build, since that board only has 16x & 4x PCIe's.
Such as:
GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 $129.99
or the slightly more expensive
ASRock Z68 Extreme4 $189.99 or possibly
MSI Z68A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 $189.99

Also if you are going to SLI get the HX750 or 850 instead should provide you with all the power you'll need for that too and they are more efficient.
The HX750 is about the same price too.

Assuming you are going for reliability with the SSD, for which the 320 is an excellent choice. For speed OCZ Agility 3 or Corsair Force 3 would be better.
