I'm building a new gaming PC and it's my first time.
I've picked out the parts to purchase but I'm wondering if they are all compatible and will fit each other. I'm a PC building noob so I'm kind of lost.

Case: NZXT Phantom 410 Crafted Mid Tower with USB 3.0 White
Mobo: MSI Z77A-G45 Gaming
CPU: Intel i5-3570k 3.4GHz
CPU Cooler: CM Hyper 212 EVO Cooler
GPU: MSI Geforce GTX Twin Frozr 4GB GDDR5
Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750M High Performance 750W Power Supply
Ram: Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 240-Pin Desktop Memory
SSD: Samsung 840 Series MZ-7TD120KW 120GB Solid State
Hard: Seagate 1TB Serial ATA/300 Hard Drive

P.S. I don't really have plans to overclock my computer.

Looks fine. But if you dont gonna oc then you can save 10$ and buy i5-3570 instead of 3570k.

And save another $25+ by not getting the Hyper 212 EVO, the stock heatsink works fine without overclocking

Also, would this build able to handle dual-monitor?
Regular web surfing on one and gaming on the other?

No problem there I could foresee but which Frozr model of graphics card are you looking at? You're not specific as to model in your specs

You should be able to run dual monitors with that set up without issues although some gaming performance may take a hit while running dual monitors. I am assuming monitor resolutions of 1920x1080p or lower.

I'll be using 1920x1080p yes. One last thing, is there anything else I'm missing that I need to buy?

An operating system, other than that, nothing should be needed
