SSD:512GB crucial m4

1:
Do not buy a 990x since they are set to be replaced by X79 platform in the next few weeks, if your intent on a 6Core wait for i7-3960x on Nov 14th or save yourself a ton of cash and get a i7-2600k (Quad Core), or even the 2500k with an 1155 Z68 chipset. Since in a gaming scenario a 6Core will go unnoticed amongst cheaper solutions like the 2500k in terms of performance.

2:
Memory seems over indulgent, 2x4GB 1600+ would be more than enough for Z68. 1333Mhz is hideous to go with a system like you have in mind. I would go with 16GB 2133 memory on something like SB-E.

3:
For the cost of 2x 590's get 3x 580's instead.

4:
Very good choice in SSD, although 512GB is a bit more than likely needed. 128/256 would be more suitable.

5:
Case is shockingly cheap for the money your spending on the rest of the system.

Here's a few alternatives:-

SB-E Build
CPU:i7 3960x
RAM: 4x4GB 16GB 2133mhz ddr3
MB: An X79 motherboard from either Asus ROG line, or EVGA
PSU:1500w silverstone
GPU:x3 GTX 580's in TRI SLI
HDD:2TB 7200rpm
SSD:128GB or (2 in RAID0) or 256GB model
Case: Corsair 800D or similar premium case

Z68 Build
CPU:i7 2600k or (2500K better choice for gaming)
RAM 2x4GB 8GB 2000mhz ddr3
MB: Asus Maximus Extreme Z68
PSU:1500w silverstone
GPU:x3 GTX 580's in TRI SLI
HDD:2TB 7200rpm
SSD:128GB Crucial M4
Case: Corsair 800D or similar premium case
