Is there a issue in my first build components list I somehow didn't notice?

Hi everyone,

I am posting to ask you people if you think the list of components I am about to buy is OK. This is my first build, and I am a little scared to do something wrong... I already bought the proc and mobo at microcenter, a 4670k and asrock Z87 extreme 4 that were actually cheaper than the combo I wanted, 3570k and asrock Z77 e4. Bought them for 300$ and now I need the rest, for around 600$.


Approximate Purchase Date: the closer the better

Budget Range: 600cad After Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, and some intensive math prog for my research project

Parts Not Required: proc and mobo already bought, i5-4670k and asrock Z87 e4. mouse, monitor and keyboard not needed either.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.ca, but others are way ok too, as long as they ship in canada. checked on ncix and some others but the price was so small (a few dollars at most) that for now my whole list is on newegg.ca

Country: canada

Overclocking: for Easter!

SLI or Crossfire: not right now, maybe not ever


Here is my pick:

MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case
I would like a case with easy cable management and that i can keep long, was hesitating with the rosewill challenger though

Rosewill RNX-G300LX Wireless Adapter Card
can't have the ethernet

CORSAIR CX series CX430

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

Crucial M500 120GB SATA 2.5" 7mm SSD

Do you think everything is OK?

thank you very much!

Best solution
