You get a 3570k and a mobo+cooler for overclocking.. AND a HD 7970 plus a 1tb HDD and the 128gb ssd you wanted. How does it look? feel free to make mods to it.

Do you like?

Edit: I updated the PSU on it because frankly i think you should be on the safe side and go for the 600w from corsair. It will be more expensive but with overclocking and a HD 7950, i think we should be safe.
