You could save a few $$: Newegg prices:

Intel Core i5-2500K $225
MSI P67A-G45
$148 (decent SLi 2x8)
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB $100

HIS HD 6950 2GB 243x2 $486
(cheapest & unlockable to 6970)
OCZ Vertex 2 120G $200
(not a bad compromise)
WD1001FALS 1TB $88

SeaSonic X Series X-850
$201 (most expensive and quite) cheaper ones are Corsair AX850>Corsair TX850V2>Antec>XFX
Other cases to consider in the same range: Inwin Dragon Rider, Fractal Design XL (most silent) ~$150ish
NoctuaNHC14 $90
mouse: Razer Deathadder or Logitech G500 or Cyborg Rat5 $60ish
Keyboard: Saitek Eclipse or razer Lycosa, LOgitech G110 $80ish
Monitor: Didn't leave much for that but for this system you can pretty much gobble up any new game on 2560x1600 resolution, and make a good show on 5670x1080. So if you're going for single 1080 monitor now, then do with one non-reference video card, like an MSI Twin Frozr III. AMD or Nvidia, add later.
