So I've decided to build my own gaming computer. Could I have anyones opinion for how good this will be? Or if it will even work. Thanks!

Specifications (With newegg site):

1. Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...)

2. GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP4 (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...)

3. EVGA 04G-P4-2673-KR GeForce GTX 670 (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...)

4.Western Digital WD Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...)

5. CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...)

6. CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...)

7. SAMSUNG 22X DVD Burner (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...)

8. COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...)

If you care, you can get the same performance fin games for a lot less money... the biggest ticket is that i7 - it will have within 2-3 of the FPS of an i5 for a LOT less.

i7 is overkill
Get an i5.
and jrgong is right, 7970 > 670/680
You have the money spend a bit more for RAM that's clocked at a different speed.
Also, That motherboard is ready for trifire/sli, if you want to do that, get a better PSU.
if not, downgrade motherboards.

you need Plextor M5P 128 SSD
16 GB 2400 G.Skill Trident
ditch the 670 for a Vapor X 7970Ghz 3GB

there a complete highend masterpiece!
