First Build i5 3570k

So these are the specs and I am looking for some feedback:

asrock

i5 3570k

sapphire 6870

8g ram

psu corsair 750 (i got this for like half off that's why the overkill on power, but i'm thinking about selling it and getting one with a smaller output?)

I haven't totally figured out the hdd but leaning towards a 1tb western digital green 6/gbs

lg blueray combo player

    Yep, that's quite a solid build. Should be able to run most games at high settings. Not a lot that I would change, other than getting a 7850 if you can afford the extra $100.
    Are you overclocking?

    I prob won't try to overclock at first, but maybe down the road as I understand it more
