Seems fine to me. What will you do exactly with this PC?

What is this computer going to be used for?

Do not get the 4GB 670 card. The extra memory will not help unless you have a triple display 1920X1080X3. And if you did, the single 670 won't have enough power to move that much memory fast. In short, for a single 1920X1200 display or less, 2GB is plenty.

1) If this will be for gaming, a 3570K will be just as good as a 3770K
Games will not use the hyperthreads.

2) No need for fast 2400 ram. 1600 is only perhaps 1% slower.

3) The motherboard seems unduly expensive. Most any Z77 based motherboard will do as well.

4) You will need a psu of about 500w to run a GTX670. I would look at a 600-650w unit.
Buy only a quality brand. Here is a list, buy only tier 1 or 2:

5) I would add an inexpensive aftermarket cpu cooler like the cm hyper212.
It will be quieter and cool better than the stock intel cooler.

6) For this budget, you should include a SSD for the os and some apps/games. 120gb at least.
Intel and samsung are good.

7) 4gb buys you little on the graphics card.
