If your going to SLI down the road a 750W PSU is all you need if not a 550W would do the trick

Besides that all looks good make sure you grab a storage drive and OS

My recamend is fill all slots dont see capacity. see mhz in board and ram.Reason mhz is the key to achive speed. if board support 1600mhz u insert 1333mhz its waste because not get full speed of ram slot. if board support 1333mhz u insert 1600mhz its also waste of money (1333mhz ram is cheaper than 1600mhz)also u not utilise full speed of ram. (2x4Gb=8Gb 1600mhz=3200mhz =3.2ghz) vs (2x8Gb=16Gb 1333mhz=2666mhz=2.6ghz).

Looks decent. Although, there are a few areas where you're overspending.

I recommend you change your motherboard to this...

ASRock Z77 Extreme4
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It will serve your needs just as good as any $200 motherboard. There's no need to spend that much money on a motherboard.

You're RAM looks good. I suggest low profile so you don't run into clearance issues if you decide to add a better CPU cooler to your build. Try this...

G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I also recommend you add a CPU cooler to your build. The stock one is good for stock clocks; however, if you decide to overclock, you'll want to grab something like the Hyper 212 Evo...

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Your SSD is tiny; it'll fill up quick. I suggest you use the cash you save from switching out the parts I listed above to get a 128gb SSD. The Crucial M4 is a great drive.

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD1 2.5" 128GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The GPU looks good. I recommend you pick a different PSU. There's better options out there. Try this...

XFX 750W PRO750W XXX Edition Single Rail
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=62224&vpn=P1750BNLG9&m...

Other than that, everything else looks like solid choices. Here are some case recommendations...

COOLER MASTER HAF 922
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Corsair Carbide Series 400R
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Arctic White
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
