Is this build good enough ? And is everything compatible ?

So I wanna build a new pc since this one is getting pretty old, and it's a laptop and I'm a gamer, yea it doesn't work out pretty well.

CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz 6MB Cache
GPU: Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7850 OC 2GB GDDR5 Windforce
Ram: G.skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 CL9 1.50v Dual Channel Memory Kit ( Do I need more ram ?)
Motherboard: ASRock H61M-PS2 Socket 1155 (CPU compatibility)
HDD: Western Digital (WD) Caviar BLUE WD10EZEX 1TB SATA 6Gb/s 7200 RPM 64MB Cache (Upgradable if i need more but it's enough for now)
Case: HEC Cougar Evolution 6GR1 Full Tower Case (will it fit my needs ?)
PSU: Thermaltake Litepower LT-500PCEUA 500W PSU (will upgrade when i have the cash)
Fans for the case: Cooler Master 120mm SickleFlow Fan (3 or 4 of those)

Thanks forums :)

  1. Good enough? No. Everything compatible? Yes.

    Problem with that build is you got a K-series CPU, yet you can't OC it because of your motherboard.

    I won't overclock I'll buy this CPU because i can't find the normal version.
  3. Get an i5-3470 or i5-3350P.

    I've found both but are they powerful enough to suit my needs ? (a lot of gaming and maybe editing)
