Can you tell me what you think?

Beware of imposters, only add me using this button.
Depends on what games you're going to play on it.
Click the 'Thanks' button at the bottom right if I helped you in some way or if you're a good person looking to thank me for no reason

You don't really need an i7 for gaming
Get it... Runs BF3 in Ultra !

You have no life.
I shall tell you what I think! Since you didn't give a budget I'll just throw out my thoughts on the selected parts and what I think is a good upgrade.
An OCZ SSD... I suggest a Samsung SSD. It's more expensive but much better.
Seagate HDD, meh. Can get a 1tb WD Caviar Blue HDD for $20 more.
As said above, an i5-3570k is sufficient enough for gaming. Downgrading from the i7-3770k will make up the price difference between the SSDs and HDDs.
Depends what brand of powersupply it is, and if it's 80 Plus or above. Seasonic 650w SLI/Crossfire ready 80 Plus GOLD PSU. Can never go wrong with a Seasonic PSU (well maybe you can, WHO KNOWS?!)
As segerydrth said, a better GPU couldn't be bad. Though the 6850 could suffice for the games you play, or it may not. A 7850 or 7870 should run all games perfectly fine.
That motherboard is perfectly fine, but this MSI Z77A-GD55 has 2 PCI-E 3.0 slots for SLIing/Crossfiring GPUs. The 650w Seasonic should sufficiently power 2 7850s, not sure about two 7870s.
Again, that RAM is perfectly fine. Kingston is a fantastic RAM manufacturer.
Just my $0.02.
Downgrade to an i5 3570k.
Then, use what you saved on the CPU to upgrade the GPU.
As said above something around a 7850 should be sufficient enough and will provide a but of future proofing
