I'm looking for gaming PC, and what other parts should I buy?

For my Gaming PC I would like to have:

-Intel i5 3570k
-GTX660 (TI, If budget allows)
-ASROCK Z77 Extreme4 OR Asrock Z77 Pro 4
-8gb 1600 RAM

So, what other parts should I buy, so that I they fit my budget.
Sorry for not so brilliant english :p 

I hope you could suggest as cheap, but still good products.

I don't think I am going to overclock, and I don't need OS.

Thanks for help already!

You can drop the SSD if you need to stay below €900.

There's no point in a 3570K if you're not gonna OC, the 3450 is just the same minus a few negligible GHz.

I put in a 7950 because it's a better buy for the money as it outperforms the 660 Ti in almost every way at the same price point.

I didn't put an optical drive because I pcpartpicker won't list any that's not Blu-ray. Just grab the cheapest you can find, they're practically the same.

Best answer selected by Nicx59.nnThanks very much, I might get 500gb to save some money (I don't really need 1TB)nAnd upgrade to 3570k. It goes slightly over budget, but your post helps!
