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 ?

I don't know where you learned math but that build will be over 800 and i would recommend getting some faster Memory that's 2x4gb, not 1x8, and some sort of HDD.

Best solution

if dont overclock, you can save around 100 dollars. ill leave both options open

liquid cooling is useless until its custom
