You are paying too much for a little performance gain

Drop down to a 3570k CPU
If you dont plan to OC a lot drop down the Cooler to a Hyper 212 for extra money savings
THE PSU is good if you ever decide to SLI in the future

Use the extra savings to try and get a 670

In gaming there's no difference between i7 and i5, hence, i5.
Changed the PSU to 550w, but if you do need 750w for something just go with it.
One ssd not gonna be enough, i suggest adding hdd.
Oh , and i'd say go with 670 insted of 660 ti. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/598?vs=647

* GPU is $260 w/20 Promo code and $20 MIRc!! You can add in a GTX 670 for about $350 or so depending on deals, but the 7950 at this price is hard to beat!
* PSU is $40 after $15 Promo code and $15 MIRc!! If you want more power for future SLI/Xfire than I'd reomment at least 650w PSU.

@Stephen904 Nice for first build build.. (except HDD)

you only have 1 SSD HDD at 128 GB should be good for booting up windows fast
but you need to add in a 1.5-2 Tb normal HDD (just pick up one with decent RPM)

else I would say go for it.... Could be made better but it always fun to make your own build than copy someone else...

GD luck

edit:- too damn early in the morning and my crappy English
