This is my first build. I am going to replace the 2700 cpu with an i7 3770 once it comes back in stock. Please review. I am mainly going to use this machine for gaming.

For gaming, no need for an i7-2700k. The i5-2500k is the SAME in performance. HT can actually hurt performance in some games.

1:since you are going for a z77 mobo, why not use a i5 3570k? its slightly faster.
2: a gigabyte 670 will be a bit better as it will have more oc headroom
3: xfx is cheaper for the same thing. go with them
4: for the mobo, p8z77 LK has the same features for a lower cost
