Looks very nice overall, you need a k series CPU to overclock and lower latency ram is available for cheaper. You can also save a few bucks on the optical and maybe ssd, I don't remember what the write speed is for the xlr8 ssd atm tho, if that's important to the software you'll be using.

Edit. You could prolly drop 100w of the PSU if you see a good deal, +200w over the site estimate is plenty. PSU OEM database so you can see who actually makes em :-D - http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page541.htm
