Looking at a new PC build, would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions on the below:

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K; $220; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504
MotherBoard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4 TH; $185; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128558
GPU: ASUS GTX660TI DC2; $300; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121653
RAM: G.Skill 16GB 1866MHz; $90; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231627
Case: Fractal R4; $110; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352022
PSU: OCZ 700W Module 80+; $90; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341018
SSD: Kingston HyperX 120G; $115; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820239049
HD: WD Green 1.5TB; $90; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236380
CPU Cooler: Zalman 110mm; $63; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118019
Media: Lite-on 12x Bluray; $90; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118019

Total is $1343 before any rebates and shopping around

I know I can get some items cheaper on microcenter/amazon, but just linked the above from newegg for ease...

Is there anything else I should look at? Anything to change? Anything missing?

I will be mainly using the system for internet, gaming (FPSs, ARGs etc) and bluray watching (and ripping backups)...

^ he's right. Definitely get only 8GB

Another thing is the psu. I don't trust OCZ psus anymore so I suggest you replace that with a corsair tx550m or tx650. And 550W-600W is enough

Everything else looks great.
