I wouldnt go with the fx series alot of people have problems with it. Since your sli'ing two gtx 560's im guessing your building mainly a gaming pc. Nothing beat the i5 2500k for a cpu for gaming right now. If you live near a microcenter there offering the i5 for $179 plus $50 off a motherboard if you buy them together. Pretty good deal.

Also ocz's have a high failure rate, atleast from what i heard and have read. Crucial makes a SSD called an m4. Its 64gb for $100 and has 5 stars on new egg. I bought one and am having no issues whatsoever.

Other than that the build looks good.

Corsair is a great quality brand for PSU's you should only need a 750 watt, but if you want a 850watt its only 30 bucks more.
