Mostly good, but these observations.

GPU: Gigabyte Windrush better than EVGA, usually similar price.
SSD: OCZ Vertex4, or Samsung 830 better.
PSU: Thermaltake PSUs aren't very good. Plus, unless planning to add 2nd GPU, in SLi, 550w is more than enough. Suggest Seasonic, Antec, XFX, Corsair, BeQuiet, PC Power&Cooling, all better makes.

Those are excellent parts, but you will need an aftermarket heats ink like the hyper 212 EVO to overclock the processor
