Default Howq my small form factor build look?

Hey guys thinking about making a small gaming rig for the TV and these are the parts iv selected, any issues with them? Also what do you think of it?
Silverstone Grandia GD06B mATX HTPC Case 1X5.25 3X3.5 Hot-Swap 2X2.5 3X120MM USB 3.0 Fan No PS Black
Intel Core i5 2500K Quad Core Unlocked Processor LGA1155 3.3GHZ Sandy Bridge 6MB

Zotac GeForce GTX 570 Fermi 732MHZ 1280MB 3.8GHZ GDDR5 2XDVI Mini-HDMI PCI-E DirectX 11 Video Card
Comes out to around 920 pre tax or so. If it can be made cheaper than please advice, ill be shopping in canada so ncix or newegg.ca only please. (prefer ncix for instore so that's number 1 option)
With price matching it comes out to around 893.

Its only for gaming i guess so if some costs can be saved, much appreciated. gaming at 1080p.

My System Specs


at 1080p resolution you might get away with a 560Ti instead of the 570 if you wanted to save 100 buck or so. Other that that, the build looks good.
