Hi. Is this a good gaming build? I might overclock it, I'm not sure. I plan to use it for gaming, dvd ripping, media, and some casual internet/office. What do you think?

The build:
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2
GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H
[2x] G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB
SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze 520W
PowerColor AX7770 1GBD5-DH Radeon HD 7770 GHz
Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM
COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1
LITE-ON DVD Burner
[2x] COOLER MASTER R4-L2S-122B-GP 120mm

Thanks in advance!

In general, a very good build. If anything holds it back, it will be the graphics card. You don't state your monitor resolution, which has a bearing, on how well a HD7770 will work. Most games will be playable at 1080p, but high/ultra, in some games will be "a stretch". Obviously, at lower resolutions, it would cope better.

For a gaming build, the video card you chose is weak relative to the CPU you chose. You might not need a stronger card depending on which games you play and on what resolution. It would be nice to have a budget to make other suggestions to you.
