I like it no objections.

As always ppl will come and say you can get better stuff spending more...

well I think if you will be gaming I strongly believe that you should get a better CPU cooler

at minimal Evo 212 by cooler master about 30$ and while you are there get 3570k unlocked, oc later (obviously the unlocked CPU is not necessary but thinking of future, maybe youll want a little more performance;) but definetly get a better cooler

Not to mention he can't OC with that mother and prolly would need one that cost twice the price.
OC? -> $200 more

Z77 boards really don't cost that much more.. it would be like $70 more to have K version + cooler + Z77 board. But anyway if you don't plan to overclock you have a good build there.

i would definitely reccomend getting the Maximus V Extreme. i have it and most of my other parts are the same as yours, and it works awesome, has the awesome asus ui, and is really easy to overclock with.

Good build, i have a i5 3470 (I love it!) i also have 8gb of Corsair Vengeance ddr3 1600ghz :D  really good ram! i would recommend a modular psu for better cable management but if that does not bother you, then it's perfect. just make everything is compatible! :D
