Is the RAM dual or triple channel?

good build. one thing though, AMD currently does not support tri channel memory, so it will not be fully utilised. go with dual channel memory and you will be good.

those dominators cost too much IMO.

look at this ram instead.
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
runs at the same speed with better cas7 timings and it's $35 cheaper. it could be $45 cheaper if you use the promo code they have listed.
