how are you going to get 12gb on a z77(dual channel) platform? get 8gb(2x4) or 16gb if you have a serious case of throw money out the windowism like I do... otherwise everything looks good except maybe I'd throw in an SSD and you might also be able to get away with your old hx550 with ivy+kepler.

For cooling for the 3570k, An corsair H80 would work, or even a basic coolermaster h212.

+1 on the memory..

The psu.. if you've had it as long as the other machine.. leave it with it and sell it as a unit..
Other than the addition of a ssd you have everything you need.
