New build need advice

So yeah I want to play games on the pc at like max graphics (ultra settings) with a steady 50-60 fps. Here is my current build so far and also feel free to change some things. My budget is $1500 since im not that rich. I also think i'll be buying everything from Micro Center since there in my neighborhood.

Intel Core i5-3570K Processor: ($170 @ MicroCenter)

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO : ($30 @ MicroCenter)

EVGA GTX 670 FTW Graphics Card: ($420 @ MicroCenter)

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H Motherboard: ($150 @ MicroCenter)

8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM: ($40 @ MicroCenter)

128GB Samsung 830 Series SSD: ($130 @ MicroCenter)

2TB Western Digital Caviar Black Hard Drive: ($180 @ MicroCenter)

750W Corsair TX750 V2 ATX Power Supply: ($120 @ MicroCenter)

CM Storm Enforcer Mid Tower ATX Gaming Computer Case: ($90 @ MicroCenter)

TOTAL: $1330

    Amazing Build. Would go with that in a heartbeat. If you don't want the risk of water cooling get the noctuna nh-d14 cooler, is probably better then the H80. if you aren't overclocking to something crazy, then a cooler master 212 evo will work just fine. Also get some low profile ram.

    Thanks for the advice :)
  4. Well way to give the rest of us a chance.
    For that money, I would use 420$ to buy a 7970, that thing squashes the 670, easily.
