How much video editing and rendering are you doing? You might benefit from an i7.
You are overspending alot on that motherboard. Money that could be used to get a better GPU.
Your paying A LOT for that 560Ti. If your spending that much, get a 7850 OR get the cheaper MSI Twin Frozr or the ASUS DCII. In the $250 range nothing beats a 7850 unless, of course, the programs you intend to use will benefit greatly from Nvidia's CUDA cores. If I were you, I would get a mobo in the $130-150 range and up your GPU to the GTX670.
@ the OP. You have been given some good advice on here. Your build isn't "balanced". You have a crap load of money socked into that board meant for dual cards and hard core over clocking, and you shorted yourself elsewhere in that build. You state you have no plans on dual cards yet you have that 650w psu wich is over kill for a single 560 ti, and under kill to push two of those cards in SLI.
