Looks pretty good. The GTX 670 should run most games fairly well, you have a decent amount of RAM, and a decent mid-range CPU.

Are you getting the "k" version of the processor? Because if you aren't, it can't overclock. If you don't want to overclock, get a h77 motherboard instead of that z77 - it'll be cheaper, and the only difference is if they can OC or not. (Also, ngengerous, the i5-3570k is the BEST processor you can get for gaming. It's not mid-range except for a few specific apps that can make use of hyper-threading.)

Don't get 1866MHz memory - Intel really only benefits up to 1600MHz.

Other than that, I think it looks great. (Responding to ngengerous again, my overclocked GTX 670 will run 90% of the games out there, maxxed out, at 100-120 frames a second. If that's running them fairly well, what's your definition of running them excellently?)

That is a pretty good gaming build. You should be able to run most/if not all games on ultra/high settings no problem.
