Overkill on so many levels for just a gaming rig. Plan on overclocking? I'd avoid that motherboard and go with Gigabyte or Asus, z77series, because the cpu already has graphics in the processor.Or even a budget MSI or biostar if you dont plan to overclock.
A 3750k wold be as fast or faster in games then the 3770k would, and you could use the extra 100 for an ssd .Also if you dont plan to overclock, The "K" series processor is a waste of money.
upgrade to a 1TB WD along with a 128 or 256 ssd as your operating system drive and the speed will scare you, and spoil you. I prefer samsung 830 or 840 series SSD or the Crucial M4.
DDR3 1600 ram is cheaper and you'll never notice any difference anyway.
Buy a good 600 watt or higher psu such as corsair or seasonic with active pfc. Dont skimp!
coolermaster cases are nice and the HAF 912 is cheap and cools well.
cpu cooling Budget ;Coolermaster hyper 212. If your overclocking? Thermaltake water 2.0 extreme, works well with the newest 1155 cpu's
Generally onboard sound is extremely good on 1155 motherboards.Unless you have thousands invested in audio equipment, a sound card is a waste of money.
The 660ti is an impressive gpu and can handle anything you could throw at it in most cases. maybe overkill too.
