Check my specs. NEW BUILD!!

Hey, New computer build, I am not up to date with the new hardware like graphics cards ect ect. So I wanted you to please check my computer specs before I buy them. My budget it $1500 and this is what I came up so far.
Intel CPU Core i5 3570K - LGA 1155
ASRock Z77 Extreme6 Intel Mainboard - LGA 1155
Corsair 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600Mhz CL9 Vengeance (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9)
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB (SH103S3/240G) 2.5" SSD
Corsair HX850 V2 850 Watt 80 PLUS Gold
Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Cooler Master HAF 912 Advanced
Gainward nVidia GTX 660 Ti Phantom 2GB

I am not sure if there is anything "new" that is around same price and I could replace with anything I have here, if there is please tell me and tell me how good this build is.

Overall please give me a review on this build. Thank you very much!

    That is way under your price limit, if you ever should want to do a 2-way SLI, then a 750W PSU should be there. For editing 16GB is good, is you are gaming, then switch to 8 GB. I put 2 TB HDD there, because it is a bit more expensive, but a lot more storage. I left the case there, it seemed that you liked it.
    EDIT: Forgot to write that, if you are going to OC (it seems you are), then add a CPU cooler. Hyper 212 EVO is good. And then you should get low profile RAM too.
  3. Thanks, Yeah I changed some things around. Also I cant get it that cheap because I live in Australia. It all comes toghter at the price of $1.300 + My case $200. Which is around $1500. Forgot to add + a fan for OC.

    Austrailia prices. I left out a case so you can choose your own.

    Edit: Realized how expensive nvidia is at australia compared to amd radeon. The gtx 670 is about the same price as a 7970 ghz edition. http://pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_877&products_id=20995 This is better than a gtx 670.
  5. Samsung 840 pro 256gb if you can spare the extra money.

    All from AU places. I put an OS on there (as you don't mention needing/not needing one). Left case off so you can pick your own.
  7. Yeah Australian prices, lucky I got my GPU for only 290$. Thanks everyone.
