Post Check My Build

Hey All,
So I am planning on building a new computer very soon. I was hoping some members would check the build. My Budget is about $2150AUD and I will be using Umart Computer Notebook&PC Parts - Umart onlineŽ Your one stop Computer Shop for computer parts,notebook and new system to buy the parts.
So lets have a look at the component

Coolermaster HAF X 942

ASUS P9X79 Deluxe

Intel i7 3820

CPU Cooling:
Antec KUHLER H20 620

ASUS GTX 680 DirectCU II Edition

G. Skill 16GB @1600MHz(CL9) (4x4GB)

Liteon IHBS312 (Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Read/Write)

Hard Drive:
Corsair Force 3 Series 120gb

Western DIgital 1TB Caviar Blue

Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit

OCZ Fatal1ty 750W

Total Price at the moment: AU$2129

*Going with the i7 3820 at the moment, because I am waiting for the next set of extreme processors... HURRY UP ALREADY INTEL

I have a few questions about this build:

1. Do you think that this PSU will be enough for all this components
2. That all the components will fit in the case (I believe it should, but a second opinion is always nice)
3. Do you think what I am getting is good value for money (note, I am wanting to get as powerful a computer as I can to last me many many years).
4. Any Building Tips/Recommendations (other than the usual: make sure you're grounded, motherboard standoffs - what you find on most websites)?

Cheers for reading this.

Agreed that 16GB of RAM is too much. No need for all that.
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"

Personallly, I would go with a 240GB SSD. The 120 would be a little tight.
FX-8350 @ 4.7 cooled by H80, 32GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 2133, Asus Sabertooth 990FX, 2x Radeon HD 7850 2GB in X-fire, 500GB Samsung 850 Evo, 4TB Seagate, 3TB WD Black, 2x 1TB WD RED in RAID 0
