Everything is good and looks powerful so good luck. However personally I would make a few changes. Firstly, although the gpu you have chosen is powerful, I would go for two r9290's. Because they will be more powerful together . I would go for the Powercolor PCS+ or the sapphire tri-x. To accommodate for the price, firstly I would spend a heck of a lot less on the keyboard. And secondly, I really don't see why you're getting a HDD that's 10000RPM. just go for one that's 5400 or 7200. These should decrease the price. http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2359120 Those benchmarks should help.
