Hey there.
So I've decided I want to build my own computer. I was looking into buying one for gaming (and I wanted one that would run all the modern games at their fullest) primarily. But decided I wanted to get my hands dirty and build one.

So here is what my research has led me to. What are your thoughts and suggestions on this setup?
I already have a really nice monitor so I will be using it. I won't be doing dual monitor gaming but may have a dual monitor setup for basic computing and research.

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($299.99 @ Newegg)
CPU Cooler: Xigmatek GAIA SD1283 56.3 CFM CPU Cooler ($19.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($104.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($62.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Crucial M4 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($109.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($86.98 @ Newegg)
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 680 2GB Video Card ($488.94 @ Newegg)
Case: Rosewill THOR V2 ATX Full Tower Case ($133.98 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: SeaSonic 750W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($22.98 @ Newegg)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 (64-bit) ($139.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $1522.81
