    I'd change the OCZ vertex 3 SSD to a Crucial M4, Intel 510/520 or Samsung 830, otherwise it looks pretty good.

    in my opinion you have put a decent bit of money in places that you could take a step down which would allow you to put more money into a better GPU which currently looks like your bottleneck. Unless you plan to use the Z77 chipset to its fullest potential in tandem with your i5 3570k you could drop to a i5 2500k (which is still considered a tank of a gaming processor) and go with a z68 MOBO. for example heres marest's sample build for about 1k US.

    Gaming 1050
    MoBo: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 – $121.99
    CPU: Intel i5 2500k – $204.99
    RAM: G.Skill Sniper 1600MHz 2x4GB – $47.99
    GPU: MSI Radeon 7950 – $399.99
    HDD: Samsung Spinpoint 1TB – $109.99
    PSU: Seasonic S12II 520W – $69.99
    Heatsink: CM Hyper 212+ – $29.99 Review
    Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout – $79.99
    --------------------------------------------------
    Estimated Total Price – $1065
