Looks like a very nice system although I am wondering why you're opting for an AMD FX 8120 Zambesi based system rather than an Intel i5 2500K one. The i5 2500K is generally regarded as a better gaming chip.

In a recent magazine review of AMD based motherboards, the Asus Sabretooth 990FX mobo gets a very good review with a score of 82. The Asus Crosshair V Formula gets 89 and is said to have a better soundcard than the Sabretooth as well for just a bit extra cash (£10). The ASRock Fatality 990FX Pro comes out as winner even though it only gets 88 but apparently has better software for overclocking and is a bit cheaper than the others. As you haven't specified a separate soundcard, perhaps the Asus Crosshair V Formula would be a better buy.

The other components all look very good. EVGA is considered to be one of the better Nvidia GTX 570 makers.
