Default Double Check New Build Please

Hey guys, long time viewer and finally posting. I'm building a new rig for my roommate and I just wanted to run the build by you guys to make sure everything is straight. Are there any additional cables I'll have to buy (for the SSD maybe?) We already have a few combo deals planned, I just need someone to look over compatibility. I appreciate any input and help. Thanks

Get the i7-2600k model since it has unlocked multiplier.
Get ram in sets of 2 or 4 only since it runs on dual channel.

Edit: Get a different DVD drive, the one you listed can only read disk, can't burn nothing with it.

The H70 is next to useless if you don't get the k version.

That wireless card looks okay...but you may want to do some research about how far it can reach and how far away the wireless signal is. You don't want to get a cheap card just to find it was a waste...(I've already done that )
