New Build: Need Advice on CPU/Mobo/Graphics Card

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($209.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme6 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($154.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Video Card ($187.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $552.97

The mobo also comes with 8gb (2x4gb) Crucial 1600 RAM

I already have a PSU, case, ssd and aftermarket cpu cooler.

Is there anything I should change? I am looking to stay within $550-$600 for the CPU/Mobo/Graphics Card

  1. Nope. Those are all good quality components. Assuming your PSU is adequate, you are good to go. One thought though... the free memory is a single stick of RAM. Nothing wrong with using a single stick, but you won't be able to make use of the slightly faster dual channel arrangement without a 2nd stick in the other memory slot.
