Default i7 2600K Gaming PC Build ~$1400

Hello Hardware Canucks, I made a post here a few months back on a potential first gaming PC build and got plenty of help on it, but had to leave building it for a while and eventually decided to wait for better parts to come out, which I'm glad I did. I've put together another build which I think should be pretty good, but I'm posting it here for a final check before I go and order the parts, to make sure I don't royally screw myself on incompatible parts.

MOBO: ASUS P8Z68-V Pro [link]
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K [link]
GPU: Zotac GTX460 (x2) [link]
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL [link]
PSU: OCZ Z-Series 850W 80+ [link]
SSD: OCZ Vertex 2 Extended Sandforce 120GB [link]
CASE: Silverstone Temjin TJ10B-W [link]

I am not too bothered about the monitor, mouse, and keyboard right now, but I do know that I would like to output to something like 1920x1200.

120GB may be considered rather for storage, but I can't imagine what I would do with 1TB of space, and I think I'll benefit greatly in performance if I use a solid state main drive. I'll buy a normal 1TB drive later, if it ever becomes necessary.

Thanks guys.
