New PC Build. Feedback appreciated

Are you building this computer yourself or having one built for you (Like HP, Alienware, or even a small shop)?
Building myself.

What is your budget and does that include shipping/taxes?
~$850. Yes, with shipping.

Where do you live (Please list town, state, and country)?
St. Louis, Missouri.

What do you need this computer to do (like gaming, Photoshop, and so on)?

What parts will you need for the computer? List what parts specifically, saying you need everything will not do.
Everything .

Are you reusing any parts for this computer? If so say what parts (make and model).

What kind of monitor/resolution do you have or want to get to use for the computer?
Going to be using my old 18" monitor for now. I have plans to purchase a larger monitor in the future.

Do you have already have a OS or do you need one? What OS is that?
Will be getting W7.

What are you looking for the motherboard to have feature wise? Like SLI, Crossfire, Firewire, USB 3.0, Sata 6.0 Gb/s, and so on.
Any mobo with a chipset that allows me to OC my CPU.

Any plans to overclock the CPU or GPU?

What time kind of time frame are you planning on ordering these parts?
Within the next month.

Hello, it's been awhile since I've posted here but since I'm in the market for a new computer I thought I'd run this build by you guys so I could get some feedback on it.

Here's what I came up with:

Case - HAF912 -

CPU - i5 2500k -

GPU - Sapphire 7870 -

PSU - Antec 520W -

RAM - 8GB Crucial -

HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB -

MOBO - ASRock z77 -

Heatsink - Coolmaster Hyper 212 Evo -

Optical Drive - LiteOn -

OS - Windows 7

Overall I'm very pleased with it. I'm getting the CPU for very, very cheap I think. I was originally going to go with a 560 Ti but I was given a tip to go with the 7870 instead. Also, I'm aware that the 7870 is currently out of stock, they were having a pretty nice sale on it on Newegg.

Anyhow, any advice/feedback would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.

EDIT: Actually on second thought they may have actually discontinued that card. Uh oh
