I've got two things that may be changed; 1) CPU, the Core i5 3570 is a "locked" processor, I'd suggest the 3570k which is unlocked and compliments the Z77 board a little better, and 2) the PSU, at 750W is a little on the overkill side for this build, you may be able to save some by selecting a ~500W PSU (unless considering future SLI)
That's all I got

That's why we're here, to help clarify things not super obvious - what country are you shopping in and do you have any vendor preferences? We may be able to cut some of the budget without compromising performance (just a possibility we can look into)
If you haven't checked out this video, I'll recommend it (it's old so ignore the parts they're using but it's very well done IMO and still pertinent) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_56kyib-Ls

Any concerns, just ask

Damn, I still used up the about same budget but it is a Haswell build (newer CPU and motherboard)
I would expect some games to play with acceptable frame rates (35+ fps) with Ultra settings at 1080p but most would be in the high or medium settings
Some notes about changes
I'm not sure if that is the right case model (the one you listed above) and I didn't include extra fans
The PSU was swapped for a Sirtec built 750W (the Seasonic would be better but I couldn't find the M12II 750 through PCPartPicker)
Motherboard was changed to Gigabyte Z97 for future SLI consideration (SLI is the use of two NVidia graphics cards together to make the graphics more powerful - if two or more AMD cards are used it is known as CrossFire-X aka X-Fire)
CPU was changed to a Haswell Core i5 unlocked "k" model (I will point out here that the unlocked CPU simply allows for overclocking which can be beneficial in some games (BF4 as an example)
You might just want to play around a little at PCPartPicker see what you can come up with, I may be able to cut the budget a tad more but that'll take some research to ensure quality is not lost in the process.
