A few suggestions, but mostly involve spending a tiny amount more:

Any particular reason you want that Mobo? For less than £10 more you can get this much better Z77 MSI board: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/msi-z77a-g43-intel-z77-s-1155-ddr3-sata-iii-6gb-s-sata-raid-pcie-30-(x16)-d-sub-dvi-d-hdmi-atx

That CPU, as far as I can see, is around the same price as a 2500k and only slightly cheaper than the 3570k. Id recommend the 2500k over the 3550, but if your not planning to overclock and have a spare tenner, go for the 3570k.

4GB ram is the bare minimum you want to be using for games, but if you want to get those Ultra settings and future proof; its best to go for 8gb.

You should really know the exact name of your PSU, its important! That being said, an 80+ Corsair should be fine and 500w is the minimum wattage recommended by Nvidia, so you should be ok with that.

With a GTX 670, playing at that res isnt great, 1080p is a good idea.

well I am not going to overclock becausE I don't have money for a z77 mobo :( so in that case which CPU do u suggest to get ?? I can get the 3570k but I was told that its the same as the 3550 in stock speed , and about the ram I already have the 4 gb ram and I will upgrade it later , and for the res , do u recommend me to get that 22 inch 1080p screen or just stick to my 20 inch " can't spend more on the screen " :)
And thank you

HMMMM, 17th Lancers Cap Badge, with an RAF motto, im confused, through troubles to the stars indeed, anyway sound advice buy a Z77 board there cheap enough, this one from MSI is only £5 more than your board, oh and a 3550 will be a great little chip for your needs and totaly compatible with this board...

Haha, someone finally noticed! Yeah, I used the RAF motto because it was the only one I liked that fit, and Death or Glory is already there in the picture.

Btw, the board you suggested - I have already linked in my first reply.

Yeah hopefully he gets the message now weve both mentioned it..

I personally prefer my own Corps Moto, Arte Et Marte....

Now your going to have to look up what it means and which Corp it is.
