Are These Good Parts For My Build?

I am very new to building gaming rigs, and I have picked a few parts that I would like to use in my rig. Let me know if this is a good combo and will I be able to overclock and how well will the rig preform in BF3 and other games. Any help will be much appreciated.

1. BitFenix Prodigy
2. GeForce GTX 660
3. Intel Core i5-3570K
4. MSI Z77IA-E53
5. Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB
6. CORSAIR HX650
7. CORSAIR Hydro Series H60
8. Kingston 120GB KC300

    Nice build, should be able to play BF3, Crysis2/3 on high settings with good frame rates.
    For about the same money you might want to consider the newer intel cpu and board(s)

    You will gain a little performance and they will run cooler.
    Don't know what the budget is, but if you can squeak out a few more dollars, I would go with a GTX760.

    Still, your build is a nice one.
