Looks good. For gaming, you don't really need more than 8GB RAM, I'd cut there and go with a beefier GPU.

I'd recommend going the Haswell route though, take this as a suggestion:

16GB is really unnecessary for gaming. I'd also recommend getting the i5-4670K over the 3570K.

So if i play bf4 on ultra 1080p and stream, 8gb of ram would be enough.

An SSD is currently down to preference since they are still fairly expensive. It will greatly improve boot times of Windows and your games, but if you will use a lot of storage you may just want to get an HDD.

You might consider buying a better graphics card with the money saved from cutting the RAM down.

That's a really nice build and I agree with all of it, but I'd recommend this RAM instead. Just my personal preference though. :)
