Get a i5-3470 and H77 mobo, not b75.
Get a quality PSU from Antec, Seasonic, XFX, Corsair or PC Power and Cooling, Silverstone at least 80 plus bronze.
Radeon 6870 will outperform 7770.

Yes, I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like B75.

I'd also say do not mess with low voltage RAM on a Sandy Bridge / Ivy Bridge build. You need at least 1.5V.

For that budget I'd suggest this:
