I was wondering if I'd experience any bottlenecking with this build, since the gpu is easily the most high end component in here.
I'm going to hijack an old optical drive put off getting an SSD for awhile, this is already stretching my budget and well, I'm an anime dork, and running out of space on my painfully slow SATA 1 hdd already so I need the storage. But I was considering a Kingston HyperX when I do.
I'm sort of new to building pcs, but from my knowledge maybe your CPU Cooler may prevent you from OC'ing your 3570k to a certain level. Don't take my word for it though!
Well you're not wrong. There is some truth to that. However when a CPU gets really hot is when you start playing with voltages other than stock. On stock voltages most CPUs can overclock to 4.3 - 4.4 GHz easily with just switching the multiplier. But when you start getting into advanced overclocking (in the 5.1 - 5.2 range) that's where the fancy cooling solutions start coming in handy.
On a $1200 build the original looks pretty good but I'd get a 670 over a 680 and then add a good SSD:
