Instead of dual 560TIs, go for a Fire Pro or a Quaddro if they're available where you live. They can handle the finer redraws that most consumer / gaming cards can.t

And then for SSD I'm not the biggest fan of Intel SSDs - go for a Samsung 830 or Crucial M4 instead.

For your RAM - a dual channel setup will not work in an X79 build, you will need 16GB of RAM in 4 x 4GB.

If there's a store you buy from - please provide a link as that will help to suggest parts.

Yeah for the most part - the motherboard, CPU, and everything else looks good.
