Your build looks really good with one exception. I would swap out the Vengeance for a low-profile RAM. This will ensure that there is no interference with your CPU cooler. Also, I wouldn't trust an OCZ PSU. I would go with a Corsair CVX500 V2. It will be more than enough. Other than that, it looks solid.

1) Do you really need the PRO? Awesome mobo, but if you aren't going to utilize all of its features, better to get a cheaper mobo.

2) Get a better SSD. OCZ SSDs are fast, but a bit unreliable. Better to get Crucial or Samsung.

2) Case is good, but the Haf 912 is better and not much more.

I was told that OCZ would provide more power to the system. Hence, i selected this; thanks though.

I believe i'll be using all the features. Besides, playing Flight Simulator X, rendering videos, and using other programs like adobe after effects, photoshop.

Yes, i think i should change the SSD, Samsung is much better option. Is it possible to have Samsung SSD and Hard drive together?

The OCZ would most definitely provide more power, but you won't use it all. That's why I recommended the Corsair 500w. It's a great brand that you can definitely trust, and it won't hog up as much power. However, its always about personal taste, and if that's what you want, most certainly get it.
