After two days of researching and starting to understand the functions and power of parts and components, I finally settled on my first gaming rig. Please tell me what you think of it.

Mobo - ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68
Fan - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4x4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Video Card - EVGA 015-P3-1580-AR GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB
Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM
DVD Drive - HP 24X Multiformat DVD Burner 24X DVD+R
Power Supply - COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Hybrid RS-850-SPHA-D3 850W
Case - NZXT Phantom PHAN-001RD Red Steel
Speakers - Logitech Z506 75 watts RMS 5.1
Mouse - Logitech G9x Black Two modes scroll USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse
Keyboard - Microsoft Sidewinder X4 Keyboard

OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM

BTW, do I need the wireless adapter? Or does the mobo include something like that?

You will need a wifi card for wireless. Drop RAM to 2x4gb - 16GB is not used in gaming nor will be for a long time. Get the Radeon 7950 as it is better and runs on less power, and runs cooler.
