You could get a different power supply, like a corsair modular one, also a hyper 212+ heatsink should be good enough for the psu

You have mostly upper end parts, but a mediocre PSU. In short, don't skimp on the PSU.

Do you plan on buying a second video card? I ask because 500w is more than enough for any single-GPU system.

If you want 2 video cards, this is about the cheapest PSU I would put in the system
Power Supply: XFX 750W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($84.99 @ NCIX US)

If you want to stick with one video card, this one
Power Supply: XFX 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($53.99 @ NCIX US)

Other than that, looks good.

enjoy!

Thanks I will go for the 550 watt PSU that you suggested as I am not looking to connect two GPUs. As I am buying most of the components in a bundle which includes that PSU I will probably just chuck it out as it is still going to be cheaper than buying everything seperately anyway. :o
