They look fine, however have you considered either going sandybridge or cheaper 1156 instead?

What is your budget and usage?

Swap out the Raptors for an SSD, and the Caviar drive for a Samsung F3. The F3 is faster.

Do you really need 8GB of RAM?

Don't buy a 5770, get a newer card, like a 6870 or GTX 560 - budget will help on this one

The Phenom 965 is essentially the same chip as the 955, you could save a little money with the 955

Finally, I see no OS listed, what will you be using?
