Kinda new to Building PC's (A lot of options out there and want to make sure my rig is reliable and of good quality for future proofing) Primary function is gaming I specifically want to see how beautiful I can make Skyrim.

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770k
CPU cooling: Cooler Master hyper 212
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H
Memory: Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1600
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" SSD
Secondary Storage: Western Digital 1TB 3.5" 7200rpm
VG: EVGA GeForce GTX 770
Case: Cooler Master Full Case
PSU: Corsair Pro 750W
OS: Win 7 home Premium

Put the parts together through www.pcpartpicker.com cause I found the site it very handy for managing my build.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. I want this bad boy to play top tier games for the next couple years but I don't want to overspend on overkill. From what I've researched the parts I have are reliable but I'm always paranoid something will go wrong aha...

If its just for gaming,downgrade to i5-4670k if youre overclocking! 650 watts is enough for the build even overclocking!

The Motherboard I've chosen only supports 3rd Gen, would i lose much by going with the i5-3570k or should I find a new MB such as (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...) to support the 4670?

Newer 4th gen for better future upgrades.
Cheaper ram, same performance.
Cheaper gpu, same performance.
Bigger and better quality psu for future SLI.
Windows 8.1 is overall faster, IMHO.
