Default Improvements/opinions of new build

First time building a PC for gaming. Not planning to OC by the way. I don't really trust myself...

7970 Gigabyte OC
i5 2500k
8gb 2400 g.skill Ripjaws-Z
Cooler Master HAE 922
Cooler Master Extreme 2 PowerPlus 625W
Windows 7 Home
21.5" Samsung S22A350H
Samsung SATA DVDRW
Asrock Z77 pro4-m motherboard
OCZ 60gb VertexPlus SSD
Hitachi Deskstar 1TB or WB Blue 1tb
as well as all the keyboard, mouse, speakers, network/sound card.

So as I stated, anything you like/don't like about the build please tell. I am taking any advice I can.

I vote for the WD drive over the Hitachi.

One last suggestion (if you can spare the money), get the regular P8Z77-v board
