Also i was wondering is it good to stack haste i have seen other mages do it before only asking becuse arcane blast takes a while to cast (spec arcane) And does any mages have any details in why it may or not be good to stack haste?

Do note that once you get the 2-piece Tier 10 bonus it is more beneficial to cast Arcane Blast x3 and then cast Arcane Missiles if you get a Missile Barrage proc. This keeps the 12% haste buff up at all times.
I do notice you are a bit low on the haste side. I personally run with around 800 haste and roughly 3100 Spellpower, gemming some pure haste (wouldn't generally advise it, though).
I'm sure some people may disagree with me on some things, but in my experiences this worked out the best as far as balancing my stats went on my Mage.
Almost forgot. Take notice that stacking haste becomes less beneficial the more you get of it. The more you have, the more you need to gain reduced casting time on your spells. As I mentioned, I like to keep mine around 800 at the least in the gear that is currently available to me.
The 2-piece Tier 10 bonus will help a great deal here, as it is not subject to this rule, but rather a static 12% haste boost as long as the proc is active.
