Get the Crucial M4 SSD, which is only 6 dollars more. It is more reliable than that OCZ one. Drop the RAM down to 1600 MHz. You won't see any real-world difference. Plus, the 1600 MHz of G.Skill Sniper is only $48. Get a 6970. It is less power usage and performance for the same price.

I did not see a 6970 for a cheaper price the cheapest 6970 was $40 more than my card.

Don't worry 'bout the GPU. The 560ti is plenty good. In fact the parts you've chosen in general can't be faulted.

But with more and more games geared towards using multiple cores in the next few years, the 2500K is well worth the extra 100. You'll save a few bucks with the 1600Mhz RAM anyways.
