First Gaming Build - Advice/Rating

Hi guys,
Building my first gaming computer soon and wanted some advice on the parts I've picked.
I will use it mainly for gaming (BF3, Hitman Absolution, Borderlands 2, Left for Dead) and really, would like to play on mostly high-'est' settings.

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K £167 (Wont be overclocking too much)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 £26
Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 £109
GPU: Asus Radeon HD 6870 £129
RAM: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB £42
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB £59
ODD: Sony AD-7280S-0B £13
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 £38
PSU: OCZ-ZT650W £69
Monitor: TBD (suggestions?)

Any advice or suggestions are welcome. Also I'd like a rating on how well this will perform with moderately high graphic settings with the games I stated up there ^

(Budget around £850. Apart from monitor, I have all peripherals)
