Ok, so before I go ahead and buy these parts is there anything wrong with it?

RAM:G Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333mhz Ripjaws
HDD:1TB Samsung Spinpoint
DVD:LiteOn iHAS224 24x DVD±RW
CPU:AMD Phenom II x4 955
Graphics Card:Gigabyte GTX 560Ti OC 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card
CASE:Coolermaster HAF 912 Plus
PSU:Cougar 700W CMX Series Modular PSU

Thanks in advance.
if it fits your budget then get a motherboard with a 970 or 990 series chipset

head to newegg and search for AMD motherboards with hose chipsets . Starting price is under $100

The "cougar" psu may be an issue
"The main problem with this power supply is voltage regulation. Starting at 560 W, voltages got outside their allowed range, what can make your computer behave erratically. We tested two samples, and both presented the same problem. Therefore, we can’t recommend this unit."

Corsair TX 650 is a good solid and proven psu , and a bit cheaper too
