New gaming build - comments and advice.

Hi everyone!

I've done my research (thoroughly I hope) and have created a system. I would appreciate your help with making sure everything
is compatible, and that I am creating the best system for my money.
My budget is 2000-2200 and right now my system comes in at about $1955. (I live in Australia, so part pricing is different.)

I will be over clocking the system.
It is being built primarily for gaming.
I would like the system to last 2-3 years (until the beginning/mid of 2014) with occasional upgrades.

The system is:

LG RET BH10LS30 BLK BluRay Burner, 10xBD-R Read/Write, 16xDVD+-R Read/Write, SATA, Silt Play, Win7Comp.*bonus 6speed BD-R*

Coolermaster COOLER MASTER HAF RC-932

Silverstone 850W "Silverstone" 80PLUS Gold, 2x 4+4pin-EPS, 2x 6+2pin-PCIE, 2x 6pin-PCIE, 8x SATA, 135mm silent fan

Corsair Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 DIMM Kit RAM

Seagate Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm SATA III Hard Drive

Crucial Memory Crucial 128GB SSD M4 2.5 with Data Transfer Kit

Intel Intel Core i5-2500k 3.3GHz Quad Core Processor

Asus P8Z68-V PRO-GEN3 MB, Socket 1155, Intel Z68 Chipset, 4x DDR3, HDMI, DVI, D-SUB, SLI/CrossFire, SATA3, eSATA, GbLAN, FireWire, 8CH, USB3.0, AT [P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3]


Sapphire HD7950 3G GDDR5 OC 3G 384Bit GDDR5 PCIE DVI HDMI 2*MiniDSP DX11 OC

I will also be looking to purchase a WiFi card as I am unable to pass an ethernet through house for another month.
Also, do you think this heatsink will be enough for cooling?
Do you have any monitor suggestions that are below $250?

As always your comments and help are always appreciated.

Thank you.
