212 evo + z77 are capable of handling OC 3570k

but with 3470 it is just perfect :)

Hi, it's better to just drop the cooler and that motherboard since you have the i5-3470, it allows for better card like the 7870.

Oh wow quick answers ! :D 

No I don't plan to OC. Between 3570K and 3470, I save like 40$ ^^

The Asrock mobo is really interesting. Everything I need.
And good idea to upgrade to 7870.

Is there a big difference with 200R and 300R ?

^ personally i will pick cheaper case as it is just case, as long as it has good airflow. adds no performance to pc at all. corsair 200R is good choice :)

Hi, i think it's best the 200R for your budget, it's a good case, the best at it's price.
All those changes allows you to buy a better card, my recommendation, for a 7870, get an asus, gigabyte,msi :)
