New system - opinions?

Hello fellas!

Well, finally upgrading and I want a well rounded system with a fair budget of just over £1000/$1558.50. I've been browsing around and have come up with this:

Processor - Intel Core i5-3570k @ 3.40GHz
CPU Cooler - Akasa Venom Nano
Case - Antec 902 Gaming Case
Power Supply - Akasa Venom 750w
Motherboard - Asus 277 Maximus V Geno
Memory - Corsair Vengeance 8GB
GPU - GeForce GTX 680 GDD5 PCI-Express
HDD - Western Digital 1TB SATA 64mb Cache

How does this look? Is there anything you guys would recommend changing, or is it a viable build that'll last for a few years?

Thanks,
Josh
