Solid build overall I see no real weaknesses, but I have two alternatives you can look at.

For the same price you can get a GTX 570 instead of your 7850.

Also, I recommend the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard for that pricepoint, though Asus makes good boards as well.

Overall, solid build though.

It should be when released.

It will also be much more expensive.
