I would ditch the zalman cooler and go with a coolermaster H212 evo. It's cheaper and an overall better cooler. I would also consider dropping down to a 3570k and save 100 bucks. The 3770k will perform the same in games as the 3570k. The only difference between the two is hyperthreading. Take that 100 bucks you save and upgrade the gpu to a 680. Otherwise everything else looks pretty good.

Okaay,changed it to an 680 and the I5,any other advice?changed the motherboard aswell,cus it didn 't support the 1866 memory that had,have the Biostar TZ77XE4 ATX LGA1155 - Biostar TZ77XE4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (TZ77XE4) - PCPartPicker now,is that okay?

Looks solid. If its mainly for gaming the 3570k is fine. If you are at 1920x1080 I would still stick with the 670 as its not a massive gain for the money to go to the 680... Your call in the end.

My recommendations/opinions:
  • i5-3570k, much better choice for gaming. (I believe I read that you changed it, just being sure!)
  • The coolermaster Hyper212 Evo CPU Cooler vs the Zalman (As the previous poster said, it's better)
  • The GTX 670 is a great choice, Where I live it isn't that much more money to upgrade to a 680 though, so (remember this is my opinion) it just seems to make more sense to go with a 680, it's all up to you though.
  • The Corsair PSU you picked is a very good choice. I highly recommend it.
  • The case is good.
  • The SSD is good, I have the 128GB version currently and I love it.
  • I would HIGHLY recommend ditching the Seagate drice and going for a Western Digital Caviar black with the same capacity (I've had many bad experiences with all types of Seagate drives, so I kind of hate them now.)
  • I looked into the Biostar tz77xe4 you said you've picked, looks very nice and seems like a good board.
  • The RAM is a great choice.

That's my 2 cents.
If you have any questions or want advice on something feel free to ask in a reply or PM me!
