So I've been looking around trying to get the best PC for the price. This is what I have come up with. Budget is around 1000.
Intel core i5 4670k 3.4GHz socket LGA 1150

MSI Z87-G45 gaming socket LGA 1150

Radeon HD 7870 overclocked 2048Mb

Corsair vengence ddr3-1600 pc3-12800 dual channel

Zalman z11 plus atx mid tower Computer case

AOC e2252swdn 22" LED-Backlit moniter

Windows 7 sp1 64-bit OEM

Corsair Cx series cx750m 750 watt power supply.

LG 24x Super Multi Internal SATA DVDRW DL Drive - Bare Drive

6-Channel 5.1 Surround Sound 3D PCI Sound Card

XigmatekPTI-G4512 Thermal Conductive Compound 4g

Toshiba 1TB 7,200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive DT01ACA100 - Bare Drive



Few questions.
Im building a completely new pc.(moniter, everything). Do I need to add something? Not including keyboard and mouse.

Are all these parts compatible with each other?

Do I need the sound card?

Does my motherboard allow me to connnect to the internet wirelessly or do I need to buy something for that?

Do I need a 750 watt psu or could I downgrade a little and save some money.

CPU Cooler for overclocking.

Yes.

Not unless you have quality speakers or headphones.

No; it does not. You will need to buy a card for it.

No; a quality 550W PSU is sufficient. Get the XFX 550W. Also, Corsair's CX models are low-end PSU aimed for basic systems, not high performance ones.

a cx 500 or cx 600 or a season sl12 520w would be fine for psu and it does come with wirless and for the soundcard it depends on if you are picky about audio

The motherboard does not have onboard wireless.

@legokill101: You meant the killer LAN chipset. It has nothing to do with wireless.
