I think 12GB RAM is a little excessive.

And are you planning to overclock your CPU?

And when are you planning to upgrade your 560?

change that i7 to an i5 2400 it runs on par with it gaming

change your hdd to a samsung spinpoint f3 1tb hdd it is faster and cheaper-

1155 mobo's cant tri channel ram. so no 12gb only 4, 8, or 16gb sets. 4 is all that is needed for gaming but 8 is more so the standard

wireless internet is not good if you are gaming you want a direct connection to your router with an ethernet cable

the 1200 is a little pricey how about this case-

no sound card is needed unless you have a 500$ set of speakers where you can actually tell the difference. the motherboard's onboard sound is fine

with the money you saved grab a 750w psu so you can sli-
or this one-
