Approximate Purchase Date: As soon as possible

Budget Range: About 1400

System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3D Modelling, HD Video Editing, Gaming, Photoshop

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers, Display

Country: Australia, but I can ship parts from America if necessary.

Parts Preferences: Intel, HD Radeon

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200

Additional Comments:

I'm thinking about a setup like the following for about $1300 AUD, inc. shipping:

Intel i7 3770k
16GB ram @ 1600MHz (Brand: Elixir)
2 TB HDD SATA III 7200 RPM
120 GB SSD
Asrock Z77 Pro3 Motherboard
22X DVD Burner
2GB HD 7850 (Sapphire or HIS)
850W PSU
Unbranded PC Case
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

My questions are,
1) Will it bottleneck?
2) How much can I OC the CPU and GPU?
3) Will I be able to run games like BF3 on HIGH / ULTRA settings?
4) Is the price right?

It's a fairly decent build i never heard of that ram before though are you sure it is good maybe somebody else will know anyways to answer your questions Will it bottleneck? No How much can I OC the CPU and GPU? well when it comes to overclocking your cpu nothing is certain i'd say 4.5ghz for sure any higher is a 50-50 chance and you would also need a good aftermarket heat sink before you start oc your cpu as for the 7850 OC'd is > GTX 570; and nearing GTX 580 levels. Using less than half the power... here is the results for the Radeon HD 7850 and Radeon HD 7870 cards:
