No it's not OK!

I can't find your motherboard on Newegg. This is a nice alternative.

Also you don't need to SLI. It's only worth for multiple monitor gaming, in other cases one powerful card tears appart every single game in today's market! My choice would be a 6970! True killer card.

XFX HD-697A-CNFC Radeon HD 6970 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Vertex 2 is bad quality SSDs. Get an Intel one. Reasonable perfomance plus reliability from Intel. Only think you have to ask is if it has the new firmware that fixes 8MB bug. If not, install it yourself and you 're done!

Intel 320 Series SSDSA2CW080G310 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - OEM

Don't get Green drives even for storage...Samsung Spinpoint is the choice here!

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

As you won't Crossfire or SLI, a smaller high quality PSU will do the work!

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

Case is huge but that's a personal preference! Now it's OK.
