Default New build: Are my selections OK?

I'm a small time stock trader who needs a reliable PC that can handle numerous programs running simultaneously. This computer will never be used for games.

I would appreciate suggestions from more experienced technicians as this will be my first build. I'm mostly worried about components incompatibility.

I've read thousands of reviews, mostly on NEWEGG and have selected components that seem to be the more reliable in their respective price ranges. Thanks for any help that you could offer.

Those video cards and the power supply are probably overkill if you're not going to be gaming on this machine.

Thanks cboucher,
I wasn't at all sure what to buy for the video card and the PSU. It's nice to know that it was overkill before spending money on something I won't be needing. I'll look into less expensive components.
