I'm guessing you have that 700w psu for plan on adding a second one of those cards later on. If that's the case then you do not want that motherboard for the fact it runs dual cards @ x4 instead of the normal x8. That's a $140 board so it shouldn't be any problem finding a board in that price range that runs dual cards @ x8.

Your all set.

If this is a gaming build and you don't have any plans on adding a second card then your build can be improved. Drop down to a 550w psu, find a cheaper priced board and use that extra $ for a better vid card. I can see where you could easily knock off $50+ on that build. That would give you $50 towards a better card.
