    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

    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
