Looks good to me,you didn't skimp on anything so its a good all around system.Only things that could use a upgrade is your gpu,but its still a powerful system regardless.I would expect to get at least 4ghz out of that 3570k as long as you don't get a garbage chip.

You probably don't want the 500W builder series supply. Go with an XFX 550W or something with a little more headroom. The required wattage ramps up quickly when overclocking.

WD Caviar Blue is great for budget systems, but will not make for a very good desktop experience. At a minimum get the Caviar Black, or a Seagate Barracuda. If you can increase the budget, work a small SSD in there for the OS.

What GPU would you recommend?

Raidmax power supplies are a fire hazard in a box, avoid at all costs.

For a budget system the Radeon 7790 or GTX650Ti Boost is a decent choice. For that system I would say a 7870 or GTX760 would be a better match up.

Best solution

At 1080p I would suggest something around a 7950 or gtx760.They are good enough to play most games out there at max settings with AA turned off.

+1 for staying away from raidmax.Make sure your pair your system with a good quality powersupply.You don't want your whole system to burn out because your powersupply malfunctions.

That system will stomp the one you posted at first,But I still suggest jumping to something like a seasonic powersupply,it may take longer to get the money but its worth knowing your rig is getting safe amounts of power.

Alright I Added The Seasonic 550w and its now an $1100 great Build thanks guys

I can say from experience a 760 will synergize great with a 3570k ;)
