You forgot the processor. You need a wireless card to do wireless internet.

Without knowing model of ram it's impossible to tell if it will be compatible with your build. What cpu are you putting into it?
Do you plan to overclock?
What is your budget limitations?

I'm putting a Intel® Core™ i7-3770 CPU. I don't plan to overclock. I don't have an exact budget but I don't want to spend to much probably about $2000. My ram will be 8 GB DIMM.

Get a better graphics card, silly to have a i7 paired with a 560Ti if are gaming. Better to go the other way around and get a i5 3570k with a GTX 670, or at least a GTX 660ti. When gaming a great GPU easily trumps a great CPU.

Just to confirm that your budget is $2000 US dollars?

No, my budget is $2000 Australian. Thank you I will use that and I assume that the graphics card is compatible with my motherboard?

Yes the GTX 660ti will work with your motherboard, it will need two PCI-e 3.0 slots, which your motherboard has.
