That Sir, looks like a very solid reliable Build.
I have never used G.SKill Memory, but many people here have and it should be just fine for what you have there.

I would suggest picking up an Extra 120mm Fan or Two, to mount on the Side/Bottom of that Case.
It will help with your Temps.

I assume you are going with the Stock Cooler?
If you are going to do some Overclocking in the Future, I would suggest an Aftermarket Heatsink, like the ZeroTherm NV120 Nirvana, or something similar.

Good Luck with the Build!

Why get an crossfire motherboard with a Nvidia graphic card?

Good build, chipset and CPU made by AMD so it should work......All true than for that price you can have also an solid Intel . probably I can't forget when you have to choose those VIA and SIS chipset if you want an AMD .

Excellent build. I recommend the OCZ Vendetta 2 for the CPU cooler.

You might wanna check out NCIX's deals tonight before you order. Last week's deals were really good. They even had the GTX275 for $275.

Also, don't forget to price match.

I assume you're gaming on a 22" or 24" monitor?

Have fun with your new computer, it's a killer build.

Maybe an extra fan for good airflow in the CM690?

Like geokilla, take a look at NCIX's sale. I suggest you order from them and pricematch everything.
