Im upgradeing my computer i want to know if these parts sound good they seem good to me
Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-03 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Thermaltake TR2 TR-700 700W ATX 12V V2.3 & EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply
MSI Z87-G45 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Pro Gaming
Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell Quad-Core 3.4GHz Lga 1150
Are these good parts? Im coming from a nzxt gamma case, a rosewell 500 watt power supply, a asus m5a97 motherboard and a 3 core amd processor. I know the parts i picked out are better but is this good for the money im paying? Thanks

The TR2 PSU is a not even close to a good PSU, it's more like a time bomb disguised as a PSU. This 650w XFX costs the same and is a much better PSU http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1650snlb....
For the motherboard and CPU get an Z97motherboard(like the Asus z97-a) and the soon to be released 4690k(releases june 20th) . The case looks ok.

The z97 chipset is newer and Asus boards are usually higher quality than MSI. If you are overclocking the wait will be worth it, the new cpu's use a better tim solution so they don't run as hot as the previous generation.

The 4690k is about $5 more than the 4670k, according to the pre-order price of the 4690k.
