For the price, i love your components. Excellent build, but don't forget Cooler Master Evo to keep that overclock cool.

You didn't mention where you live in your post.
And 3570k >>> 6300.
But 7870 < 7870 XT.
So I'd obviously recommend you to look for a 3570k.

Yeah, stick with the 7870XT. And don't sweat not having a microcenter. Most people don't.
However, look for combo deals on newegg. sometimes they pair a CPU with RAM or motherboard at discount.
