No point in getting an unlocked processor with a B75 mobo and no point in getting a 3570k when the 4670k is just a few dollars more. You still had $40 to your budget so I'd grab a 4670k and a Z87 mobo, it'll be worth saving up a hair more if you have to but you're basically tossing money away with the mobo you picked.

Looks good to me although Im sure you'll get lots of people telling you to spend a little extra to get a haswell i5. Not a big difference in price but not much in performance either though.

Unless you're running integrated graphics ram speed doesn't really improve performance much past 1600, especially in an Intel build. If you do think you need faster ram you can always overclock it yourself. I'm not sure about every mobo but mine has a menu where it asks you what speed you want your ram to run at. I think some are a bit more complicated than that but OCing ram is usually a pretty easy task.

Pretty sure it gets difficult once you start getting into timings and voltages.
