The 660ti is going to be out in a week, so I would wait for that or the normal gtx 660. Those two will have a big impact on mid range pricing.

o.k. it looks good but you forgot a optical drive and the motherboard is a waste of money as you can get the same features out of a 180 dollar motherboard as for your ram i know the big heatsinks look cool and all but they will conflict with your aftermarket cpu cooler you need low profile ram and as for the i7 it's not intended for gaming the i5 is so here some changes i made to your build which by doing so also was able to add a SSD for you let me now what you think and if you don't like it no worries it's all good.750w is fine for x2 560 TI in SLI, in the unrealistic event other than stress testing that you reach maximum draw you'll still be well within specs and efficiency with the 750 model. Even the 650w model would hold up but run a little warm.
