Everything else looks good, but I just hope you're not trying to game at 1080p with that 7770.

The lowest-spec cards that would be suitable for that resolution are the Radeon 7850 and the GTX 650 Ti BOOST.

Nice. Depends what you're gona use it for though.. Just gaming? As most people here will say, if it's just gaming, change your processor to a 3570K since theres no performance difference versus the 3770K, then put the extra money to a better GPU, 7870 maybe?

Im using it for gaming, photoshop, and video editing.
im also thinking about adding a 500-100 gb internal HDD in addition to the SSD

I'd bump the 7770 to a 650ti boost, unless you won't really be playing games.

The 650ti boost, goes head to head with the 7790, but it has double the memory and higher bit rate, making it the better choice, imo.
or another step above would be the 660,

I wouldn't get less than a 660 for gaming.

Here's a 1tb hard drive,

I'm only suggesting Nvidia because IMO, the 650ti boost and 660 are better than the AMD counterparts for the price. Anything above that i'd recommend AMD.
