This will be my first time building a PC and I would like to know if these parts are compatible.

i5 4670k
2x 4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 Mhz
ASUS or ZOTAC GTX 770
Corsair Enthusiast TX 650W Semi Modular PSU
1 TB HDD
120 GB SSD
Cooler Master 212 EVO
Cooler Master HAF 912 Combat

Questions:

1) Is the case good ? or should I get something better? Budget for case is $150 - $200


2) Currently the only z87 motherboards that I can buy in my country are:
ASRock Z87M Pro4 Motherboard
ASRock Z87 Extreme3 Motherboard
ASRock Z87E-ITX Motherboard
ASRock Z87 Extreme4 Motherboard

Is any one of these worth buying?

I can order MSI, Gigabyte and ASUS mobos from eBay but they are a bit expensive because of the shipping taxes and all

I plan to OC after a while but just a bit as I haven't done it before.


3)Should I get the corsair TX, HX, CX or AX ? I'm not sure how they differ


Thanks in advance for any help

1) Yeah case is good enough. Its a decent mid tower case. Just that you might face problems with front USB 3.0 of motherboard.

I would recommend getting Fractal Design Core 3000 USB 3.0 Black. Costs around $50.

2) ASRock Z87 Extreme4 Motherboard is one of the well known ones out there. Very successful, very durable, very reliable. Plenty of features to play from since it supports everything a gaming motherboard should. Buy that one. Costs around $150.

3) Get Corsair CX600W Builder PSU Bronze Certified. Costs around $80.

Everything is compatible. No worries. :)

What's the difference between CX and TX?
I'll go with your suggestion and order the extreme4

Just different categories. I am myself not aware of actual difference but know that CX is probably better.
