Nice, pretty solid build.
Just a few things though:
Will you be overclocking? if not then you could save some money and get the 2500 instead of the K (not sure what the price difference is though so It might not be worth it)

Corsair over Gskill due to lifetime warranty.

A 1tb Western Digital Caviar black would probably be better as a system drive although I cant say for sure as I have never used a F3 for system.

750W is a bit overkill unless you plan to crossfire in the future still might be a little overkill then too.

Still seems pretty good though

Oh and yeah it should run games pretty high
