Gaming PC - Components Help


I'm putting together a PC mainly for gaming. I'm trying to get a good 2 to 3 years out of this build and need some help from experienced people with some of the components.

Parts Selection:

CPU: i7-3770K

M.BOARD: ASUS P8Z77-V-LK Intel Z77

RAM: Kingston HyperX 8G Kit(4Gx2) DDR3 1600 x 2


DRIVE 1: Samsung 830 series 128G SSD

DRIVE 2: Seagate 3.5" Barracuda 2TB

CASE: Antec DF-85 Dark Fleet Gaming Case

PSU: Corsair TX850 / V2 ATX Power Supply Unit

CPU COOLER: Corsair H100

I will be over-clocking and looking to get at least GHz for now. I have been told that i may need to change my Motherboard to a better one if im trying to over-clock to GHz. Also i am getting lots of mix messages about the H100 and the noise level it has.. is there a better part i could be using for around the same cost or would air cooling be better way to go.

Im getting these parts from MSY Sydney and would appreciate if i can get some help as to whether im on the rite track. i am also considering going SLI later as an upgrade option.

Also what is the accepted temp for a CPU running on stock speed and over-clocked? This will be my first computer that i am putting together and overall this is costing me $2000.
