Default Thoughts on my Build

I'm planning on making a PC and i'm wondering if this is good and if you think i should change anything.

NZXT Phantom 410 Mid Tower Case Black
Intel Core i5 2500K
EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Superclocked/ASUS Radeon HD7950 DirectCu II 3GB (not sure which one)
ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard
G.Skill Ares F3-2133C9Q-16GAB 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3
Corsair AX1200 Gold Power Supply
Intel 320 Series 160GB SSD
Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Corsair Hydro Series H80 CPU Cooler (Unsure if i will Buy this or a Fan)

Any Help will be appreciated.

My System Specs

You have an incompatible cpu & motherboard picked out. 2500K is LGA1155 and the ASUS P9X79 is LGA2011. 1200 watt psu is overkill unless you are doing additions later on.
