Hi, I am going to get a new computer soon and wanted to know if there is anything that should be changed about my build.

CPU: Intel Core i7 3770k(Ivy Bridge)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100
MOBO: ASUS Sabertooth Z77
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
SSD: Crucial m4 128GB
GPU: ASUS nVidia GeForce GTX 680 / EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 680
Blu-Ray Burner: Some LG Burner (12X Write Speed, 10X Read Speed)
Networking: Bigfoot Networks Killer 2100
PSU: Ultra X4 Modular Power Supply (135mm Fan, 750W, 80+ Bronze)
Case: Corsair Obsidian Series 650D (Mid Tower)
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

The price is 2600$-ish including shipping to Israel(where I live) I say -ish because TigerDirect don't have the GTX 680 and 3770K yet so I assume that compared to other prices. That price will still be cheaper than buying the system here in Israel because everything is overpriced(Around 700-800$ for the GTX 680, not even overclocked, and the SSD costs like 280$ here too and the list goes on and on).

I thank you for your feedback.

For gaming, don't get the 3770k. Get the i5-3570k.
