The intel quad builds wont compete with the FX build I suggested above . The higher cost of the processor forces you to buy a mb with less features and a much weaker graphics card .
The result is lower fps in gaming

And a shorter upgrade life . An AM3 motherboard will be able to be upgraded with future processors . intels socket 1155 dies in a couple of months

The FX processor can be overclocked .

And as game engines are updated the FX will become a relatively better gamer than the intel quad . There are plenty of sites now reporting extraordinary Crysis 3 benchmarks with an OCed FX 6300 out performing even intels i5 3570k which is also overclocked . Newer game engines can use all the available cores and thats a trend you can expect to see continue .

What features does H77 lack? Also, your build is substantially more expensive and has half the drive space. For the difference, ~70$, OP could just get a 660ti or even 7950. I seriously doubt an i5-3470 is going to be the bottleneck in a 700$ build.

You can use the stock heatsink . It works . But the extra $30 on the GAIA or Hyper 212 means lower temps, less noise and the opportunity to overclock the processor and get free performance .
If you need to cut the budget then you can always add a better cooler later if you want to

In this case its a micro -ATX board without all the expansion slots of a full ATX board
It has only two RAM slots so thats harder/more expensive to upgrade
4 of the 6 SATA ports are running at half the speed of an AMD board
and when combined with the 3470 you cant OC [ or cant OC anywhere near a as much ]

The 3470 wont be a bottleneck , but neither will the much cheaper FX 6300 which means you can add graphics power .

Sadly that power supply is a door stop and more likely to catch fire than run your computer . The corsair previously mentioned is a better option .

That is a VERY expensive 7870 . All 7870's run at 1 GHz , except the OC models that run faster . You could pay $30 less and have the exact same performance
Or you could uses a 7870 XT [ or LE ] which is a 7950 with some disabled sections . It performs slightly better than a regular 7870 and runs slower which to a hard core tuner means you can overclock it a lot . These cost $240

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.98 @ Outlet PC)
Motherboard: Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($79.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Memory: Corsair XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($49.49 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ NCIX US)

Power Supply: Corsair Builder 500W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($15.98 @ Outlet PC)
Total without shipping and rebates $714.95


When I total that up I get $666
I like the suggestions for hard drive , graphics card. and power supply

But the motherboard is the le version and without the heatsinks on the voltage regulators it will run hotter . Esp is you overclock . There is room in the budget for the M5A97 R2.0 .
