I have an X6 and it's not that great - go with a Z68 and an i5-2500K - that will be way better, good choice on the GPU. Pretty much everything looks good but sub your motherboard, CPU, and RAM for this:

Try this:

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3H
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Intel Core i5-2500K
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Crucial Ballistix 8GB 1600MHz

I'd also cut down on the case to something like the Corsair Carbide 500R and invest the difference in getting a solid SSD:

- Carbide 500R: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- Crucial M4: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
