Building my first system

Hi, I'm building my first gaming PC and i would love some feedback for possible compatibility issues and the like.
I may overclock it at some point but am not too sure at the moment. These are the parts i am thinking about buying:

Case - Corsair Carbie Series 300R
Motherboard - MSI Z87-G45
Graphics Card - MSI Nvidia GTX 760 2GB
CPU - i5 4670k
RAM - Corsair Vengenance 2X4GB, 1066 Mhz
PSU - XFX Pro750W Core Edition
Wireless Module - TP-Link WDN4800
SSD - OCZ VTR-1 128GB
HDD - Samsung HN-M101MBB 1TB

Another question I have is that if I do decide to overclock the CPU, will the fan and heatsink that come with the CPU be enough? Or will I need an aftermarket CPU cooler?

Feedback is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

  1. You should get an aftermarket cooler. I recommend the cooler master TX3. It cools very well, is super easy to install, and is only $20.
    I would get the Samsung 840 Evo 120GB SSD, and the Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD

  2. Your build look verry good. Yes you will need an aftermarket cooler for overclocking. A good and cheap option is Cooler Master Evo.

    To do
    - get the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo
    - get a 600 - 650 watts PSU if it's cheaper
    - get 1600 MHz RAM
    - get Western Digital's Hard Drives instead. The Caviar Blue series would be fine
    - Get the Intel 530 series SSD or Samsung 840 evo / pro
