It's a good start - Thermaltake does not make reliable CPU coolers. Go with a Noctua instead. And avoid Sandforce-based SSDs. Here is what I would suggest:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor ($564.99 @ Newegg)
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 CPU Cooler ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock X79 Extreme6 ATX LGA2011 Motherboard ($228.49 @ Newegg)

The Fire Pro would be a better card than the Quaddro - the older ones are now outdated with the K5000 line slowly being released.
