New computer build

Is this a good build, or is there anywhere I can save a few bucks ?, Just looking for a more professional opinion on my build:

NZXT Guardian Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Case 921RB-BL - $69.99 "Comes with fans included"
AS Rock LGA1155 DDR3 SATA3 USB3.0 Quad CrossFireX and Quad SLI A GbE ATX Motherboard Z77 EXTREME4 $127.99
Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155 - BX80637I53570K $239.99
Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7870 2 GB GDDR5 DVI-I/HDMI/2x Mini-Displayport PCI-Express 3.0 Graphic Card GV-R787OC-2GD $239.99
Corsair Enthusiast Series TX 750 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Bronze (TX750M) $106.24
Corsair XMS3 8GB (1x8GB) DDR3 1333 MHz (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory (CMX8GX3M1A1333C9) $35.99

Total: $580.20

I plan to overclock the 3570k, Should I get liquid cooling, and is the motherboard good enough to handle that ?, Is there anywhere you guys could see cutting a few dollars or things I should change ? I plan to game on this computer, Mostly games like: League of Legends, WoW, Guild wars 2, Battlefield 3, Skyrim, etc, Would this setup me good enough to run these games at maximum settings ?
