Looks good, I would grab a used 570 , or a 580 they are priced pretty good since the GTX680 dropped.

The only thing I would ask is what are you planning on using your computer for? If you are going to be doing alot of encoding, or other heavily multi threaded activities then a 2600K is the way to go. If you are going to be gaming, or not using multi threaded applications then you could get a 2500K instead and put that extra $100 into other components.

I would also think about getting Z68 like Yeno said.

Ivy Bridge processors and boards are literally around the corner, so you could always wait and check those out as well.

Get a Bigger SSD. At least 120GB.

I have the 64GB M4, and while it's an excellent drive, I find it to be a little small. I only have room for my OS install and 2 big games (skyrim and Civ V). I had to install BF3 and most of my drivers on a conventional hard drive, and if I purchase more games from steam, I'll have to figure out some way of also installing them on my conventional hard drive.
