If you built it, can you not say whether it works?◄ it is what it is ►

Is this something you've already physically bought and built, or a list of components you want us to critique?
The main thing that pops out to me is the WD green HD...
Green = efficient = slow
Poor choice for the Boot drive...
Good for storage but its NOT the best choice for the main drive.
A WD BLACK edition is the faster option...
I would also opt for a cheaper PSU...
Thats ALOT of overkill unless you are specifically going SLI in the near future, or adding an insane amount of hard drives...
Newegg.com - OCZ StealthXStream OCZ700SXS 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply
$60 after rebate and has more wattage than the one you linked...
