You have a P67 board, good choice. But the Sata 2 SSD? why not Sata 3 instead?

I would get a 128Gb SSD instead of the 60. Windows 7 and 2 games maybe will fit on that. Go for the 128GB. And get a 500gb Black Caviar instead.

Get 4 sticks of 2 GB instead of 16gb. Unless you coding or editing you dont need that much.

On the video card. Get a 7970 instead of the two 6950's. You are about to spend the same amount and the 7970 may be slower but it will have 3gb of memory and you can X-fire later and crush games. Not like it wont already but 2 cards imo not worth 1 card performance. Maybe if the 2 cards would beat the 7970 maybe.
