I personally like your build. However, since you will be spending a lot, you might want to consider Haswell for you to have an upgrade path. Just my humble suggestion. :)

I saw that you were using a ASRock Z77 Extreme 4, I read reviews for it and there were a lot of good reviews aswell as bad ones like bent pins, damage, etc.., and ASrock makes you pay $50 to ship it to them and replace it... Have you had any problems with it?

I had a huge discussion with myself whether I should get the Haswell or Ivy and though the 3750k was a better option for me as I don't plan on upgrading so I might as well save the money on it. If I wanted to get he haswell then I need to look into a new motherboard as well.
