Is this a good gaming PC build for £870?

RAM: 8GB Crucial Ballistix 1600MHz
CPU: i5 4570
Heatsink: Arctic cooling F7 Pro R2
GPU: EVGA SC ACX GTX 760
Case:Zalman Z11+
Hard drive: Seagate 1tb 7200rpm
PSU: Corsair CXM 750W
DVD Drive: Pioneer DVD Drive

I just want to play games on ultra settings at over 30FPS or very high settings. I mainly want to play RPG's, a few high graphic FPS like Crysis. And maybe an MMO or a TPS or a racing game thrown into the mix.
