This set-up will work fine.

For some reason, i can't view the graphic card but anyway, your PSU have enough juice to handle any single graphic card.

If you want to cross fire/SLI the graphic card in future, you have to get bigger PSU with enough connectors to cater 2 cards.

You have too much ram, which is not a bad thing but u can save some money here if you are not doing any photo/video editing.

Why are you buying a motherboard+CPU combo AND a second processor?

Don't bother with the i7 unless you're doing HEAVY video / audio editing. The i5 in the combo is actually better, if you're gaming. (Keep the combo, and don't forget the promo code for $20 off on the motherboard)

Your graphics card link is dead - what were you thinking of? General rule of thumb is to spend twice on the graphics card what you do on the CPU.

Ram: HAHAHA. With Battlefield 3, Photoshop AND 20 tabs open in Chrome, I use just over 6GB system ram. Save yourself the cost and get 8.

You didn't go overboard on the PSU! I'm impressed. That's a good one.

That's a slow hard drive - get one that's 7200 RPM or greater. I would STRONGLY suggest just one terabyte of hard drive (which is very hard to fill) and a SSD for your OS and programs.
