this would be my build:
intel 3570k
evga 770 gtx sc 2gb
8gb kingston hyper x
cool master evo 212
corsair graphite 600t
asus 08z77-v lx
cool master gx 650 w psu

i already have some of these parts but i was just wondering if these would be good enough to play new releases and games such as bf3 on ultra settings. Also i shall probably be oc'ing to about 4.2 ghz so is custom loop water cooling a more suitable option or is it more for looks?

That's a very good build. You'll be able to max out games with that.

You won't need water cooling with that. A good air cooler like the Hyper 212 Evo will be enough for a 4.2GHz OC. If you want you can buy something even better, like the NH-D14 to be able to go around or even above 4.5GHz.

You will likely run into other stability issues with your motherboard before getting heat outputs that justify a custom WC loop.

ah cheers, ive done lots of research and this seemed like a fairly good/ future proof build. im just confused because alot of people say no to custom loop wc yet there are still many who say it keeps temps down alot! a custom loop probably isnt worth the money but it would look amazing in my case!

If you want it for the looks, can afford it, and have time to commit to maintenance, then go ahead.

Unless you are going for an extreme overclock, air cooling will be just fine. But for that, you will need a better motherboard and PSU.
