That all depends, what do you plan to be using this build for, and if gaming, what resolution do you plan to be playing at, and whats the budget you prefer to set for it?

Pro Tools M-Powered, Mathematica 7, Maple, Microsoft Office suite. Gaming is not my primary concern, although the games I do play are at 1080P. =) Budget is approximately $2300. =)

Ew, Maple...horrible freshmen calculus memories...;P

Then yeah man, I'd say you have a good build. Maybe a little overkill on ram, but that graphics card for 1080p is awesome and if they 560's are anything like my 460's, they scale awesomely with SLI.

Go for it!
