Not to bad.

As for your possible upgrades:
I'd only go for an Ivy-Bridge if your going for the 3770k, the 3570k would likely give no improvements as it's likely to clock lower (though performance will usually be equal as it is more efficient per clock) and will run hotter (though depending on your uses the 3770k may be a waste as well)

I personally would grab a 670 out of those choices as the 680 just doesn't give enough more performance to justify the added cost (also may want to consider the 7970 if you aren't stuck on nvidia)

More RAM will only help if you use all of what you have now and unless your a heavy video/photo editor that isn't likely.
