I'm not sure about the motherboard, and I'm not sure if it's worth having my optical drive being blu ray compatible.

But other than that I think it looks good

If you wand or need large-capacity data backup capabilities then having a BD burner might not be a bad idea. You can pack something like 5.3x the data per disc compared to SS/SL DVDs while also managing something like 30-60% more storage per dollar. If you're considering one strictly for gaming, however, it's probably not worth it. It took developers quite some time to move from CDs to DVDs, and it'll likely take longer still, if it even happens at all, to move from DVDs to BDs given the rise in popularity of digital distribution.

Also, with regards to your signature: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7sac6JV2Ho&t=0m13s

That's not a bad choice for motherboard. If you want more options there's the Gigabyte D3H in that price range. Get the Z77X model since you'll be overclocking. Other than that it's pretty much the same as my build which I quite enjoy.

You should be getting your RAM for like $35 less, you can get a non-GHz 7970 for close to $50 less (they overclock ridiculously easy) and if you're spending $90 for a power supply, you should be getting something modular IMO.

I would also suggest just getting a 4670K and appropriate motherboard at this point. No real reason to go with the 3570K.

Don't get the UD5H. It's a waste of money over the UD3H/D3H.

Gastaman's build is pretty solid. XFX power supplies are Seasonic units, aren't they? If so a 750W modular seasonic for that price is good and allows the option for adding another 7970 down the road.

Right now, 4670k/UD5H is only $30 more than if bundled with the D3H and only $21 more than if bundled with the UD3H.
