Hi, I am looking to build a new PC and wanted some feedback on the parts I have picked out so far, so here is the list.

I would appreciate some feedback and also, I plan to overclock but I have no experience at all. What I want to know is how much I will be able to get out of the 3570k with the Evo. I plan on playing games like BF3, Crysis, and Metro on max settings and also be able to run future games as well. I don't want my overclocked CPU to get very hot under load so I don't want to OC like crazy.
