Looks like a nice setup to me, the only thing I don't know about is the motherboard, just check to see if it gets good reviews.

There are newer SSD's around now, but the M4 was and still is a very good drive.

And I assume you have no plans to overclock the CPU? If you do then you want the 3770K and some aftermarket cooling for it.

If it's for gaming personally I'd go for the i5 3570, and I'd recommend a WD Caviar Black HDD instead of the Barracuda.
