Hi I am building a computer for a friend and sold him my GPU, PSU and case. All the other components will be new. I was wondering if the build would have any compatibility issues.

CPU: Intel i5-3470

http://www.amazon.fr/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?__mk_fr_FR=%C3%85...

Motherboard: Msi B75MA-P45

Ram: Kingston

GPU: Msi GTX 770 lightning (my old graphics card)

PSU: Corsair CX600

Case: Corsair 300r

Hard drive: Western Digital caviar blue 1 TO

My main concern is the fact that the GPU may interfere with the only SATA 3 port

Thanks in advance !

I think you are good.
I really don't think there will be any interference.

Even if there is some sort of vga/sata issue, the motherboard should come with a couple of right angle sata cables.

I just want to be a 100% sure because when you look at at the placement of the connector it kinda scares me

The white sata 6gb is well away from the graphics card. I think you could manage using a right angle sata cable from any of the ports.
