Your build looks pretty solid, a couple things I would take a look at though.

-For your SSD if you want to spend that much you should look at Samsung, it's still cheaper then the OCZ, but top notch quality/reliability. Also really good and reliable cheaper ones are Crucial M4 and Mushkin.

-I would go with an Asrock board over Asus, generally better quality and great customer service. And cheaper as well.

- Make sure your RAM is low profile. Especially with the cooler you chose, the low profile makes sure there won't be any conflict issues.

-You probably don't need that big a PSU, 620W is plenty for that build, but would up to 750W if you want to SLI in the future.
