I'd switch to Sandy, it'd be right around the same price but with more performance. I'd also add some CPU cooling, maybe a Noctua D14, Silver Arrow, or 212+ for a budget option. Oh and that power supply is very much over kill. I'd opt for a quality 650/750w, you don't even need that much but would give you room to crossfire. Some killer deals going on for the XFX power supplies.

Edit- Oh and welcome to the family, you'll love it here.

You'll love doin your first build. It is extremely fun the first time, just with a headache or two thrown in there, but fun none the less.
