Gaming/Work Desktop - First Build - Help/Suggestion/Part Compatibility Help

Hi, I am building my first gaming/work desktop and with the help of my friends, I came up with a list of parts that would be good/perfect for my use. I need help with confirming if the parts are compatible with my rest of the parts and also your opinion on the build. I am open to suggestions of other parts I should use.

  1. Looks pretty good, should be happy with it ;)
  2. I personally like your build. However, since you will be spending a lot, you might want to consider Haswell for you to have an upgrade path. Just my humble suggestion. :)

    I saw that you were using a ASRock Z77 Extreme 4, I read reviews for it and there were a lot of good reviews aswell as bad ones like bent pins, damage, etc.., and ASrock makes you pay $50 to ship it to them and replace it... Have you had any problems with it?

    I had a huge discussion with myself whether I should get the Haswell or Ivy and though the 3750k was a better option for me as I don't plan on upgrading so I might as well save the money on it. If I wanted to get he haswell then I need to look into a new motherboard as well.
