Budget i7-2600k Editing Build

Like many I've been lurking around these forums for a while and would just like confirmation for my build. I have a micro center nearby so I'd like to get everything from there. My budget is around $800 so this is what I've come up with based around the i7-2600k:

    I always go to the motherboard's website and check their Memory Support List for tested memory. If it isn't on their list, that doesn't mean it won't work well. But you do take a bit of a chance.

    If you are planning on doing any gaming with that build, I highly recommend something better than the GT 430. Nothing less than a HD 5770 or GTX 550ti will make you happy.
