Doesn't look too bad. The ram is kinda slow but you should be able to OC it. 24gb of ram is also overkill but I didn't see an option to get any less. Not sure if you can OC the ram on a B75/85 board so you might want to upgrade that.

Make sure to get 64 bit windows 8 and not 32 bit or 20gb of that ram is going to go to waste. I'm also not sure how much ram the basic version of 8 can use, 7 was limited to 16 but they might have done away with the limit/upped the limit.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

I was going to say you should be able to build one for cheaper but then Australia.

Graphics card seems a little weak for the price. I have a 3gb 7950 in the machine i just built the total cost was 800. But it's still a nice card.
