Are you going to OC that?
If not, you can also consider getting E3-1230V2.

Care to get an SSD? Your new rig will be more responsive with an SSD (in term of program loading, booting, etc, do not expect to gain extra frame per seconds in game from an SSD).
Have you considered Haswell? (4670k+ Z87 or E3-1230V3)
Anyhow, I think your rig is good to go.

I can't quite afford an SSD yet, but I am planning on getting one next month as an upgrade. I have looked into Haswell and it is a cheaper option for me to go with Ivy, unless you can build something failry similar priced with Haswell.

Also yes I am planning on OC'ing

The price difference between Haswell and Ivy is relative minimal, at least here where I live (Germany).
i5 3570k and i5 4670k have about
The performance difference is also relative minimal.
I would get the newest thing if I could but if the budget did not allow me, Ivy will do the trick.
