Smile Opinion about my build.

So I decided to build computer. Here is its specification:
GPU: Gainward GTX670 (refere)
CPU: Intel i5-3570k
MOBO: Asrock Z77 extreme 4
I have HDD,Case and AC from my old computer. So what do you think about this set?
P.S: Sorry for my poor english ;)

Looks like a decent, well-balanced build. Those 3570k's are really nice, I just bought one myself for my HTPC, supposedly good overclocks too.

I'm sure it will be a good build, just make sure your power supply from the old pc is in good condition. Have you considered picking up an SSD and use the HDD for storage?

That PSU is far from the best but should be sufficient..

The GPU, I would swap for a Gigabyte windforce as they are reference prices but added performance and cooling.

What resolution are you playing at?
A 670 will max pretty much any game up to 1920x1200, so if your using smaller resolution than 1920x1080 you may be better going for something a little smaller.
