Feedback/advice on my first build

I have been planning my replacement for my old core2duo comp and am just about ready to pull the trigger so I can have it up and running for some of this fall's new games.

I wanted to get some advice and thoughts about the build and see if there is anything that I am overlooking. This will be mostly for gaming, no video editing, some photo editing. I will probably try to oc a little, but since I've never done an oc before, it will be just some minor increases. In the future I will probably add another 570 in sli.

so here goes,

case: Antec DF-85

mb:Asrock P67 Extreme4 Gen3

CPU: I5-2500k (combo w/ HDD)

cooler:Coolermaster Hyper 212+

VGA: EVGA superclocked 570 012-P3-1572-AR

RAM:Corsair DDR3 pc1600 Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8R (combo w/ hx850)

PSU: Corsair HX850 (combo w/ RAM)

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive (combo w/ CPU)

Optical:SAMSUNG Black Blu-ray Combo SATA Model SH-B123L/RSBP LightScribe Support

So, any thoughts on the build, whether I will run into issues during the building process, or if there is something component that will be a better fit?

All feedback is welcome.

  1. If you're only going to run one GPU, you can use a 650W PSU. If you plan to add another one some time, carry on...
  2. Only thing you might want to add would be an SSD, somewhere in the 100 to 128 GB range, for the OS and a few Programs if you can afford it.
  3. I'd spend less on the case , to get the SSD in the budget
  4. Thanks for the feedback. To add a ssd, I would only need around 64gb to have a good boot drive. I'm now looking at adding this crucial
