Well, I'm totally inexperienced in regard to building computers, and this is my first ever build, so I'd appreciate any help.

I basically want to make sure that there aren't any glaring problems like components being incompatible, and ensure that I'm not spending twice as much as I need to for the same performance.

So far I've decided on:

Sapphire HD 5770
Intel Core i5 750
Artic Cooler Freezer Xtreme Revision 2
Gigabyte GA-P55-US3L
Corsair 650W TX series
Seagate ST3500418AS 500gb
Crucial 4GB DDR3 1333MHz/PC3-10600 Memory Kit CL9 1.5V
Sony AD5240S
Xilence Red Wing 120mm

Any help or pointing out incompatibilities would be greatly appreciated. :)

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

The CL of the RAM is too high, thr normal for DDR3 is CL7 or CL8. The other components are good IMO.

Only thing I'd comment on, other than what's already been said, is what resolution ?

If you're planning on playing DX11 games at 1920 x 1200, it ain't gonna go well with the 5770.
