Well I think I have found everything I need for my build and I am ready to order but was hoping for one last check. Am I missing anything in this build and are all the parts compatible. Also if there are some parts that you have had bad experiences with It would be good to know,

I know I don't have a CPU Cooler, I am planning to run the stock cooler until I can pick up a contained liquid cooler, so that I can over clock to high speed but for now stock speeds will be fine

Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX Motherboard
CPU: Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU
GPU: ASUS GTX780-3GD5
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB Kit
HDD: Seagate 1TB Barracuda Internal Hard Drive - OEM
SSD: Samsung 840 Series 120GB 2.5 inch SATA Solid State Drive
PSU: Corsair Builder Series CXM 600W Modular 80 PLUS Bronze Certified
Optical Drive: Liteon Ihas124 24x Dvd±rw
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Case: Coolermaster Storm Trooper Case

Also I have decided to run it on my T.V Samsung 42" F5500 Series 5 Smart Full HD LED TV

Are there any major setbacks about running games on this TV opposed to a monitor?

Thank you

Looks like a good build to me

This guy overclocks just as well as most closed loop coolers

In short: TV's have bigger pixels so in order to make it look like the same definition you have to set back further

EDIT: keep in mind that the corsair cx series aren't of the highest quality

Televisions generally have much higher refresh rates then monitors.

1ms, 2ms, 5ms for most TN computer monitors
5ms, 6ms, 7ms, 11ms, for most IPS based computer monitors (For good color reproduction, not really gaming)

TVs basically start pretty high, some break into the 20ms range. They are physically larger, both dimensions and pixels, this makes them slower to react.

What this means is that you may experience what is known as ghosting in FPS gameplay, or third person MMOs with quick motions. You may see faded images or blurring at the edge of rendered objects.

I have had a media PC with some gaming on a 40" LCD HDTV. It's fine as long as you have the right size screen for your sitting position. Also, being a bit further away, you don't see the individual pixels as easily so you can sometimes turn AA off for better performance without even noticing the difference in image quality.

Any recommendations for a power supply ( preferably around £50-£60, semi modular)

I'd change the PSU from the builder series to the gaming series. A small price increase but 100% worth the value. I did it myself, also, you'll need an aftermarket cooler for that CPU. Stock won't cut it.

So this: Corsair Gaming Series 2013 Edition GS 600W ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Unit

Also I thought that the stock cooler was included because it can handle the CPU at stock speeds.

It can handle stock speeds but not much else.

It'll handle the CPU, but it will just make a ton of noise.
