Looks good to me, but if you can afford it, add in a SSD for your boot drive and see the speed.

Looks pretty good to me. Make sure you don't have the Vengance with the large heat spreaders that would get in the way of the cooler.

I second the vote for an SSD. If you get one in the future, you'll have to upgrade windows.

You'll probably also want to upgrade your monitor at some point and use your current one as a second monitor for productivity.

Your built is great. Actually it is identical to mine except I reuse my case, have the V LK board, and cheap ocz psu.

One note though, get cheap ram because that vegeance is only as good as gskill/crucial/kingston/ocz. Now if you get Dominator, then you'll be in a higher category.

Also get a SSD, it's so FREAKING FAST !!! Don't listen to any1 telling you a 15000 RPM is fast. SSD is the fastest. Get the 128 GB Samsung 830 for $99 and you will boot into windows in 6 seconds, no joke. That's how fast I load my windows.
