Greetings, first time posting here so very excited!
I am intending to build a gaming desktop from the ground up, I won't be recycling any parts. Mostly I hope to be able to run games such as Planetside 2, Battlefield 3, etc. on the highest settings I can achieve with the budget I have (1500-1700 USD). Based on what I've learned from scouring the net this is what I came up with in terms parts (I plan on buying mainly from either Newegg or Amazon) and just wanted to make sure I haven't made any glaring errors in selecting them and to see if they are all compatible with one another. Any advice would be greatly appreciated:

Processor: Core i5 3570k $220
Processor Cooling: Noctua NH-D14 SE2001 140mm and 120mm fans $90
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 $120
RAM: Kingston HyperX 16GB (4x4GB) DDR# 2133 $110

Thanks again to all who can help!
