  1. You dont need that much for gaming,
    If you are gonna OC, then don't get that 3820. Get a 3770k and a z77 mobo.
    Might have to change the case to a bigger one.
    and you dont really need a 2400mhz Ram. It wont make much difference, get a cl9 1866 OR 2133, and stay with G.Skill.
    Have you gone nuts with the PSU?
    This one is enough: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151105&Tpk=Seasonic%201000
    Thers not much Difference between Seagate and WD. I would Rather opt for a 3tb Barracuda, but its up to you.
    Anyway, yours is ok, although you can save a lot of money.
