Hi I want to build a gaming PC and I really need help.
These are the components I chose:
CPU:Intel I5 4670K
Motherboard:MSI Z87-GD65
Graphics card:Radeon HD 7870 2GB
RAM:Kingston HyperX Blu 2 x 4Gb
PSU:Corsair CX600
HDD:1TB Western Digital Blue
Case:Rosewill Galaxy-01 Black
Do I need anything else?
Are they good?
Will they work in this combination?
Is it going to be better with a Corsair CX600M ?
Thanks for any kind of help!! :)

You might possibly want an optical drive but that isn't a necessity anymore. The rest looks good to me, I think you'll be fine with the Corsair CX600, the "M" model can help with cable management but that's up to you

I recommend going for a modular power supply, it allows for better cable management and less clogging up the case.
If you're going with an AMD GPU, I would wait for the benchmarks of their new Hawaii line, you might get something better for the same price.

I would agree keep the PSU you selected. A little more power is not bad I would rather have a more powerful PSU than one that would be tipping the edge. Plus if you want to do upgrades later that might come into play as to weather you have to replace the PSU also.

As for waiting for the next gen GPU's personally if you wait that is all you might be doing as there is always going to be something new down the road. As of right now on the AMD/ATI side the HD 7950/7970 are the top dogs and are really good cards. And $244 is not bad at all for that card. Plus later on down the road you could Crossfire that card if needed. I have a Sapphire HD 7950 Crossfire setup in my FX-8120 rig and it is really a great setup. I run it in a Eyefinity 3x27" setup and performs great.

I agree with the waiting bit, but the release of the new line is literally within 2 weeks, we're not speaking months, then I'd also say, go for what you want right now but that is not the case with the upcoming AMD GPU's.
