Well your mobo is overpriced if you're not oc'ing (which you won't be with a 2400). Get a cheaper h61 board, or bump it up to a 2500k. I'd also get 8gb of ram,

I would change the hard drive to a Caviar Blue. Samsung no longer manufactures their own HDDs - Seagate makes them all. WD offers a better warranty.

NM, I was gonna suggest getting a 6870 but the 560 performs the same I believe.

this build is a little less ($709 shipped) and has some improvements here and there. the 6870 is a little faster, but you can keep the gtx560 if you want. both cards are the same price. you'd have the option of SLI/CF and overclocking in the future with this.
