Mid Level Gaming Micro ATX Build

Hi,
So I'm going to start my build of a micro gaming rig.
Heres what I have planned so far.

Suggestions would be appreciated..

Case: Dragon Slayer M-ATX

MoBo: M1.Sniper

CPU: i5-3570k

I know I have not listed any storage or memory or PSU but these are simple enough to figure out myself, but the GPU is another story, maybe a gtx 660?
I wish to overclock and I may use multiple monitors once I get my rig together.

Any advice plz?
Cheers

    Idk what your budget is, but a 7870 costs the same as a 660, it about 10-20% stronger, overclocks better, and is better for multimonitor gaming. I also suggest you just post your planned budget and build.
