Tier 4 build - sanity check

Tier 4 build - sanity check
Hi everyone

I have put together a build which is basically the Tier 4 on HR. I have deviated a little, mainly due to the prices in Australia are a bit different.

I have a cart all lined up with the bits, just wanted to see if there was any suggestions/warnings the community could give me! I've put some notes where I've deviated from the Tier 4.

Mobo: Asus P7P55D-E LX (I want USB 3.0, don't intend on having 2 GPUs, and this ASUS is cheaper here than the recommended GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3)
CPU: i5 760
RAM: G.SKILL 2x2GB DDR3 F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL (I cant get the GEiL 4GB set at my local, and it is not any cheaper online after postage)
Graphics: MSI GeForce GTX 460 1GB Hawk
HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB
Optical: ASUS DRW-24B3LT 24X DVDRW LightScribe
PSU: SeaSonic S12II 620W 80 PLUS BRONZE
Case: COOLER MASTER CM690 II Advanced (w/ window!)
CPU cooler: Zalman CNPS10X Performa CPU Cooler
Monitor: BenQ GL2430HM 24 Inch Widescreen LED Monitor with Speakers (on special for $215)

My main concern is that the change in Mobo might be a problem.

Thanks for any advice!

The motherboard has everything you'd need to support that build. Nothing looks incompatible.
Beast Mode Engaged! CPU: Intel Core i7 950 @ 3.62Ghz 1.25v Heatsink: CM Hyper 212+ Mobo: Asus Rampage III Formula Ram: 12GB Corsair XMS3 @ 1574Mhz GPU: 2x XFX Radeon HD 6870 in Crossfire PSU: Corsair TX950W Optical: Lite-On DVDrw HDD: 2x Samsung F3 500GB in Raid 0 Case: CM HAF 932 See it here!
