My first build- Advice on parts please

So i am planning on building a computer in the (hopefully) near future. I have the following parts picked out and was hoping someone can take a look at it and tell me if the rig i have planned is good. I am going for a Gaming Machine that can play any online game at high to max settings with little lag.

Case- COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer ATX Mid Tower
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119240

Mobo- GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514

GPU- MSI Twin Frozr II GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127682

I want two of them but the second GPU would come later for SLI

PSU- CORSAIR 750W ATX12V
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006

CPU- AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103960

HDD- Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533

RAM- G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231460

A good suggestion for a CPU Fan would also be much obliged.

Also, i am probably gonna have to install a wireless card into it as i dont have a land connection available inside of my room. A suggestion for this would be nice as well.

  1. What kind of budget are we working with? An i5-3570K / Z77 / 7950 will be infinitely more powerful than any FX-8150 will be.

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($229.99 @ Newegg)
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($34.99 @ Newegg)
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($132.86 @ Newegg)
    Memory: Crucial Ballistix sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($45.99 @ Newegg)
    Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($84.99 @ Newegg)
    Hard Drive: Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($129.99 @ Newegg)

    This will be a far superior setup. If you want to keep it under $1K drop the GPU to a Radeon 7950.

    Yeah you especially don't want to go with the FX-8150 due to all the problems it's been having.
