Default [First time] Finalizing computer setup

NOTE: Should you want to suggest a new part, please refer to the website listed below; I live in a 3rd world country, which means that I have a poor selection available as well as overpriced components.

Computers Parts Price List

Purpose: Gaming
Planning on ordering as soon as possible.
Would like to run games such as Battlefield 3, SWtor, Diablo etc.., will this build make it possible?

Budget: $1600; all of the parts below sum up to 1368$

CPU: 3.4 GHz - i7-2600K 8M/LGA1155 (2500k not available, only 2500)

Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V PRO ATX (DDR3)

VGA: Asus ENGTX570/2DI/1280MD5 GeForce GTX 570 1.28GB DDR5 (Supports SLI)

RAM: 2X Kingston 4GB DDR3-1333 PC3-10600 ( 8GB )

Case: Thermaltakeusa**Chassis**Mid Tower**Armor Series**Armor A60 : Armor A60 VM20001W2Z (Need your input on this one, enough space for SLI in the future? Enough cooling?)


PSU: Thermaltake W0356RE Litepower 700W (Enough?; suggest one from here USB FLASH DRIVES if not)

CPU Cooler(For overclocking): ThermalTake CLP0564 Frio for LGA1366, LGA1156/5& LGA775 CPU Cooler

I also need a UPS due to the power outages in this country(Lebanon), I wouldn't want my computer getting fried on the first day; not sure how much VA I need or what a good brand is, if anyone could suggest one from here Connectivity, Accessories & Storage Devices , I'd appreciate it.

Thank you for your time & please let me know what you think.
