approximate budget?

id feel more comfortable with a better power supply, like corsair's hx, but they make good stuff so tx might be fine
you should get a better cpu cooler if you want to overclock like cooler master hyper 212 evo
and then be sure to get low profile ram so that you dont have to worry about the heatsink butting heads with the cooler

thermal paste is up to you, i plan to use tuniq tx-2, some people use IC Diamond 7, others use Arctic MX-4, its mostly personal preference...just put it on right
antistatic wristband is cheap, so you might as well get it, but many dont bother

and of course dont forget to get an OS

Thanks! around 1400$ or less would be great I'll make party soon you're welcome to come!! :D 
OK i'll get evo 2012 and wristband I already have the OS
I changed the PSU to Corsair Professional Series HX 750 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Gold (HX750) sounds good?
and what's low profile ram?! AHA you mean short ones I got it

actually if that's your budget you might even consider the ax 760, its their top model right now and is about $30-40 more expensive. might even be able to invest more in the motherboard too, like going for an asus p8z77-v (or v pro)

or, if you are in the mood for a board that could probably be used as a weapon, check out the sabertooth (although that's a fair bit more expensive)

however, if you live near a microcenter they have cpu/mobo bundles, of which sabertooth with 4670k is one of them
