Default 1100€ (~1450$) First Time Gaming PC. Good to go?

Hi all,

I finally am going to build my own PC
After researching and reading forums I've come up with what I think is a decent build.
I would however like to get some acknowledgement and advice in case some things wouldn't be compatible, or if you would suggest a change in parts.

It is a gaming PC, with a budget of 1100€ with a buffer of 100€
I'd like to play games on very high settings (I play all different type of games)
This is for the PC only as I am ordering the VG248QE this week (144hz).

I have a Windows 7 Ultimate ready as well, so that doesn't have to be included in the budget.

I have chosen an SLI ready board which also supports Overclocking.
I went with the 3570k so I can overlock it in the future, as I don't think it is needed yet. If I would overclock it I will then as well buy a CPU cooler.
I think I should be fine without a CPU cooler if I'm not overclocking yet, right?
The case also provides quite some fans (and possibilities to add a few), which should keep the CPU cool.

I went for the GTX770 as I think it's best value. I will probably add another one for a nice SLI setup in a near future

This is what I've selected so far.
In case I would change things, I'd prefer to buy them on the same website, hardwareversand.de or otherwise dabs.ie.
