Case: If you want/need a full tower, go for it. Otherwise, a HAF 912 or a Corsair 400R is also nice.
CPU cooler: Just step up to a 212 Evo... at this point, it's worth it.
CPU: Can you wait 13 days until IB is released? If not, then this is a nice (great, really) CPU.
Mobo: Kind of pricey. Try an ASRock Extreme3 Gen3. If you're going to wait for IB, buy the Extreme4 Z77.
RAM: It's nice, but 16GB isn't necessary unless you edit a lot of video (like... a LOT) or use Photoshop a lot. Otherwise, get 8GB.
GPU: Great choice.
PSU: I don't think you need 950W... but the maker you have selected is a great deal. Try... 600W? Maybe a little more...

I would really wait for IB... I think it's worth it. Many people will tell you it's not, but when it boils down to the 10% performance increase and way (and I mean WAY) better IGP, it's worth it. The power usage doesn't really matter, since it's geared towards the mobile market.

Technically, but you'll want to go with a Z77 chipset motherboard... it's ideal. Yours is Z68. Unless there are extreme circumstances, try for a Z77. I'd recommend the ASRock Extreme4

You need a Z77 MOBO like the one above to reap the full benefits of Ivy Bridge.

What review? Not all reviewers are equally... reputable. We'll leave it at that.

I do want to say that tomshardware is a great reviewer (and I'm saying this unbiased by the fact that we're on their forums). They have a great testing environment. But you also have to remember that not everything Intel advertises is 100% true... if Intel says it OCs 17% better, I'm going to assume it OCs about 12% better (on average). Sure, some chips will OC 17% better. I DO think it will OC better than SB, though...

The review sites I use are TH, Anand, TechPowerUp, Guru3D, and HardOCP.

Yeah, I'd go with azeem40... not just because he's an "addict" :p  , but because he's got quite a few sources. All I know are Anand, TechPowerUp, and HarOCP, but all three are very reputable. Sometimes some "sources" are not very reliable because of bias or bad testing conditions.
