That system is very unbalanced. Save some money and get a socket 1155 motherboard and an i5 3570(in gaming your not going to notice a difference between the 3820 and the 3570) and get a better graphics card.

Those components will work just fine together. What is the purpose of the build? What type of PSU do you have (make/model)?

If you want to game, the minimum video card I'd recommend is a GTX 660 or Radeon 7850. A 7750 will be a disappointment from a gaming standpoint.

Here are the amazon links:

Intel i5-3570K
Asus P8Z77-V LK
Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB
EVGA GTX660

The motherboard is SLI-ready so you can alway pick up another 660 if you need to beef up your graphics performance.
You have the other components already? What kind of power supply?

That's a solid PSU that will provide enough power for future SLI with two 660s.

I'd get the HAF 912 because the cutout in the motherboard tray behind the CPU becomes invaluable when mounting or swapping out CPU coolers with backplates. Additionally, the cooling potential of that case is great (very open/airy design=H.igh A.ir F.low=HAF). It also fits the Hyper 212 plus just fine. I use both as part of my DAW's configuration.
