the Asrock motherboard is fine if you want to cut cost..change the RAM to something from corsair, gskill, patriot or crucial..crucial M4 ssd is alright..get a 750w PSU if you are going to crossfire/sli and if not a 550w PSU is enough..either of the cases is fine its upto you..for the GPU i'd get a 7870 instead of the gtx 660 or a gtx 670 instead of the 7950.

edit: you won't need the caviar black if yo are getting an SSD.
