Looks like a nice build. A few changes I'd make if it were mine...JMO
2500K instead of 2600K
Rather than the GD65 I'd go with a similarly priced Asrock Extreme 4.
Change out the 1333MHz RAM for some 1600MHz.
Ditch the internal card reader for an external.
That case isn't widely available here but for the prices I'm seeing on google shopping I'd go with something else. Cooler Master 690II Basic, Lian Li PC-K57 are the first ones that come to mind in the same price range and are much much better. Plus there are cheaper cases that are far better as well, NZXT Gamma, HEC Blitz......
Hot topic of the night. PSU. I suggest at least stepping up to the Antec True Power New 650. Simple reason it has 2 X 6 pin and 2 X 6+2 pin PCI-E power connections. Where the Earthwatts model you have only has 1 of each. Sure you could use adapters but don't unless you can't help it.
A good 650 watt PSU is plenty even if you did actually have 2 cards on the shopping list
. I've pushed my i5 760 and SLI 460's pretty hard on a SeaSonic 620 with no issues. I'm with the overkill PSU club though, if you can squeeze it in the budget get a nice 850 watt PSU and most likely you will be glad you did down the road.
