I'd suggest a cpu cooler too. You have a BE addition chip, so it'll over clock well. But to do it you'll need a cooler to get you all the way.

instead of the V8 i would suggest the Noctua NH-U12P and a different power supply, from what i hear Cooler master does not make quality PSU's , maybe an OCZ, Corsair, SeaSonic, Silverstone. And i can vouch for the 6870 as i own one and it is really fast for that price

cooler master's silent pro line is one of their better series', but now that i took a look around on that site, i would suggest this corsair.
Komplett.no - Corsair TX 750W PSU
it's better and looks like it's slightly cheaper actually.

get this cooler (the one Sniper suggested)
Komplett.no - Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU Kjler
it will cool equally or better than the h50 at a lower price.

and you could also save some money by getting two of these ram kits instead, it's still 8gigs.
Komplett.no - Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 4GB CL9

Actually that case has pretty good management for wires, you can hide the ones you dont use behind the mobo panel.
