Glad you came to Tom's! This build fits what you need pretty well. It has lots of expand-ability. It will allow you to simply buy another graphics card and throw it in. The 660 is a very capable card that can overclock up to 660ti levels. The 3570k is the best CPU on the market for gaming. The 212 EVO is a very good cooler for the price. I included a 1TB caviar black for lots of high performance storage. Also, the PSU has enough power and connectors to support everything here and another card if you decide to add one.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
