Recommendations for a High-Quality Budget Gaming Build

Let me start off by saying, I'm brand new to building comps. About to be building my first one more specifically. I know how many experts are here, so go a little easy on me. I have a few nooby questions and need a few recommendations. Please keep in mind this is a budget build, but a good quality one.

Budget: $750 - $900

Specs of build I would like:

Video Card: AMD R9 270X - Which brand/model would be nice, cheap, quiet, run fast, and stay cool? [I will not be crossfiring]

Processor: Intel i5-4670K - No recommendation needed.

RAM: 2x G-SKILL DDR3 1600 4GB - No recommendation needed.

Motherboard: This is an area that I have no experience in other than sockets. I need a board that has an LGA 1150, PCI-e 3.0 socket [I will not be crossfiring], DDR3 1600 support, SATA ports, good audio, 4 USB ports [3.0 would be nice], Ethernet [no wifi], and I really want to OC my 4670K to 4.0ghz without risking damage etc. Sorry if I listed obvious things.

Power Supply/Case: I'm not sure about how much wattage I need and I have no clue which brands are reliable. I was looking at Newegg to buy a PSU and Case "Combo Deal" to save some bucks. I think 650W would be good enough, but I'm not too sure. :x

Could anyone recommend any of these for what I need: http://www.newegg.com/Store/ComboDeals.aspx?ComboStoreI...

If not, what do you propose I get PSU and Case wise?

Hard Drive: HDD or SSD, whichever is cheaper. I don't know what to look for here, except SATA, and SATA 3.0GB is all I require. Nothing fancy, just a simple hard drive that will work for a long while. 7200rpm, SATA 3.0gb? No idea. I have no need for a high sized drive. I hardly touch 300gb and tend to keep my computer clean and clear out unused files on a weekly basis. I would prefer 400gb+ though.

OS: I plan on not altering this current desktop and giving it to my fiancée when she moves in with me. With that said, I have to rebuy windows, don't I? If so is there any places I can get it cheaper than $100? Obviously need 64-bit, but $100 for the OS seems a bit steep. [Newegg]

My concerns:
-How do I actually over clock my CPU once I've got everything else done?
-If I over clock my CPU to only 4.0ghz, do I need to up the voltage and will it stay cool with only the stock heatsink?
-Is there anything I missed, or am I on the right track?

That's about it, but I want to thank everyone who helps out and takes the time to read and reply. I'm really new to this so everyone's opinion really does matter to me. Thanks.

Four your concern about overclocking, I have a 4770k at 4.2 at less than stock (auto) voltages. With the same stock cooler at around 75c
