I'm building a desktop for the first time, and wanted to know if these parts would be compatible with each other.
CPU: Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASRock H77M Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
Storage:
Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply:
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224BB DVD/CD Writer
I
The Storage and Power Supply are a mystery, but all I want to have is a 600w power supply that is of good quality and an hdd that doesn't break at start, 500+ GB would be good.

I'm a novice at choosing parts at the moment :p

Everything looks nice. No issues. How much are you willing to spend on a 600W PSU? Don't buy a cheapie. They have a tendency of dying and taking MB components with them. Corsiar, Seasonic, OCZ, XFX, FSP, and the better Rosewills are some to consider.

(The HD 7770/i3 processor combo can get by with a 500W if it is a good quality brand.)

Good HDDs are WD, Seagate, HGST, and several others too numerous to mention. You want a 3 1/2" 7200RPM, SATA 3.0Gbps or 6.0Gbps drive with as large a cache as you can afford. At least 16MB. The larger the cache, the less time the drive has to work on retrieving commonly accessed data.

The Elite 430 case is a nice budget case, but it doesn't have very good cable management. It will be hard to store/tied the cables out of the way for good air flow over the components.

I've decided to replace some parts that I thought were not of good quality :p 
(My opinion of course:p )
CPU: Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor
Motherboard:GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9
Storage: Western Digital WD Black WD5003AZEX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card
Case: (Need one that is half budget half wire management)
Power Supply: Antec HCG M Series HCG-620M 620W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224BB DVD/CD Writer

Would these be okay? I'm still a bit iffy on the power supply.

Either your PSU choice or Blackbird's will be fine. They are both good quality units about the same power in spite of the apparent wattage difference.

A case is a somewhat personal choice. I don't know what your budget or taste is like, but might I recommend the Corsair 300R...

I just build a machine with this case and it is as well made as the Corsair in my sig. Just a bit less bling and money. But it has excellent air flow, plenty of cable management room, and enough fan mtg locations to keep anyone happy.

Hmmm, I will choose your case clutch, I read the reviews, saw a look inside, and it seems that it will work out just fine, I'll just have to see :D 

Thanks! :D
