I have pretty much the same rig and play at 2560x1440. I would recommend a faster hdd, a caviar blue at least. Add a 212 evo to OC or save some money and get a 3570 if you don't plan on overclocking. Corsair and Gskill are good brands for the ram. Make sure it is low profile if you get an aftermarket heat sink. Other than that it looks good.

The 3570k has an unlocked multiplier, see the "k" suffix? You are paying a little extra to get that. If you don't want to overclock save a little money and get a 3570, no "k" suffix. You could also get a cheaper motherboard if you don't want to overclock, nothing wrong with the extreme 4 though.

The Caviar blues are 7200 rpm, whereas the greens are 5400 rpm. This means the blues will load faster compared to the green.

My two questions to you are do you want to overclock your cpu and will you ever crossfire?

What I need to know do you wanna get any PCI component like Sound Card etc..

For now you have to change HDD to Seagate Barracuda or WD Caviar Black 32 or 64 cash and add SSD, if you did try SSD before you will never drop it like that :no:  ... 80GB at least for OS.

If you going for Crossfire in future you have to include that in your PSU going with OverClocking.

For OC CPU you need a good air cooler or water cooling like Corsair H80i.

So,
Change WD Caviar Green 1 TB to WD Caviar Black 1 TB.
Add SSD 80GB or 120/128GB.
Add more Fans to give the parts some fresh air :)  in order to make it like this

Change PSU to 850W that include 4 Fans, Crosfire, OC 4600MHz/1.3V, 1x PCI-e x16, 5x USB Devices, Water-cooling, Electrolytic capacitor aging 20% and Blu Ray BD-RE/DVD/CD.

Best regards :)
