Also, what would be a good motherboard, PSU, and memory to have around this? Building my first "gaming" PC and budget isn't important as long as I can get the most out of my GPU and CPU (the aforementioned)

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H80i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($73.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($134.98 @ Amazon)
Memory: Corsair Dominator GT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($86.67 @ Amazon)
Storage: Sandisk Ultra Plus 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($169.99 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card ($399.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: SeaSonic 650W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($127.98 @ Newegg)
Total: $1183.59

You didn't mention a budget, and this doesn't include a storage drive, case, keyboard, mouse, OS, or monitor, but this setup will serve your gaming needs for a long while :-)

And I won't have any problems at all combining that CPU and GPU? I REALLY want a GTX 770, and I've heard the i5 3570K is awesome for gaming, so I'd be bummed if they didn't mix well.

Absolutely no problems :-) That CPU will run well with a Titan if you wanted it too lol. I had a 2500k, which was that CPUs predecessor with my 770 and it ran like a dream. With that CPU you will have the added bonus of being able to take advantage of the 770s higher DDR5 clocks, and the full PCIe 3.0 bandwidth. It is a great combo. Of all the parts you pick though, make sure you get an SSD. It is money well spent even if you just get a small one to run your OS, easily doubles the speed of almost everything you do

I was planning on getting a SSD :p  I've heard it's miles faster than booting and loading off a HHD. Thanks for the help.

One last question, you mentioned water cooling. What kind of overclocking can I do with that CPU and water cooling? Is it even necessary to overclock that CPU?

You don't have to, but if you want to OC Ivy Bridge chips you need decent cooling because they run hot. I included it because I wanted you to have that option later if you wanted it. It's easier to include that in your initial build, then use it later, as opposed to using stock initially and having to take it apart, add the brackets and upgrade the cooler later :-)

If you do decide to OC, and you get the motherboard I suggested, this is a fantastic step-by-step guide on how to do it. I used it to learn myself and have gotten nice, modest overclocks with the chips I've had in my ASRock Extreme4. 4.5 with my i5 and 4.3 with my i7.
