That's a solid build, there's only a couple things I would change;
First, if you're not OCing (not sure why you wouldn't but...anyway, that motherboard is overkill unless it has some feature you really need. I'd look into a P6T SE or EVGA X58 LE.

Second, you're overpaying on the RAM. You can pick up 2 sets of 3 x 2GB 1600MHz RAM for $150 each. The RAM may not OC well, but it will run at stock speeds and you're not planning to OC anyway.

I might have recommended a different video card, but I don't know nearly enough about workstation cards to make an informed comment.
