Looks great.

Go with a 7970 Ghz Edition for your GPU. GIGABYTE GV-R797TO-3GD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Newegg.com

You should buy a CPU cooler since you're buying a 3770K. Amazon.com: Noctua 6 Dual Heatpipe with 140mm/120mm Dual SSO Bearing Fans CPU Cooler NH-D14 - Retail: Electronics

With that, you could run everything at high / ultra settings.

That PSU is kind of overkill for a single GPU. SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

Where do you live?

I think the idea is perfect, a cpu cooler for the 3770k.
I had thought riding two video cards in the future, but is better a expensive card(powerful) or two cheap cards and make a sli?
thank you very much for your help and your time, i am living now in lexington, ky.
one more question: a good idea to buy a used or a new card?

One powerful card > 2 cheap cards Well first of all, that isn't even the same GPU I linked. I linked the 7970 Ghz Edition which uses a slightly different architecture and is clocked higher. And no, I wouldn't buy a used card. Used cards were most likely sent back because they had issues.
