Any problems with build i have selected?

Hi, this is my first time building a pc and I was wondering if there are any problems with what I chose such as compatibility issues...

CPU: Intel i5-2500K
MOBO: ASUS P8Z68-V pro/gen 3
GPU: ZOTAC ZT-50304-10M GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600
POWER: *Ultra LSP750 750 watt
Edit: swapped to a Corsair CP-9020003-NA Enthusiast Series TX750M 750W
CASE: Cooler Master HAFT 912 Mid Tower ATX
HEAT SINK: ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 ball CPU cooler
MONITOR: Asus VE278Q 27" wide screen
CASE FANS: Cooler Master R4-L25-122B-GP 120mm 2pk
SSD: Samsung 64GB SSD 830
HD: Western Digital caviar blue 500GB SATA III 7200rpm
Optical: LITE-ON DCS Burner SATA iHAS124-04-OE

Cost around 1500 would love feedback a bit nervous as this is my first go and I am bound to make some rookie mistakes thanks : )

    I'm going to guess this is a prebuilt from tigerdirect. Everything looks good but that Ultra psu...that has to go. It's junk and if your psu goes then chances are it's going to take other components with it. Look for a 750w Antec, Seasonic, XFX, OCZ "Z" series, PC Power & Cooling, Corsair, Enermax, LEPA, or Silverstone.
  3. PSU...better brand. Never heard of the one you posted. This will give you plenty of power and even give you room for upgrades in the future. Either would be great.

    Heat Sink...this is a much better option. One of the best out there too. Keeps up with even the High end coolers too.

    Motherboard...Wow. The one you chose is super overkill for what you listed. I would seriously consider something cheaper. Then you can spend that cash on a better GPU or SSD. This mobo will give you 2 PCIe 3.0 ports for future GPU upgrades, and its very OC friendly.

    GPU...With the money you saved, you could go with a better GPU like this. I have this exact card. Runs most all games ultra on a single moniter 1080p
    Nvidia

    Everything else looks good to me. What about an OS? Keyboard/Mouse?
    If this will be a general use, gaming pc you should be set.
  4. Thats pretty good, apart from the PSU of which I've never heard of either.

    If that 27" monitor is above 1080p, you might need a GPU a bit stronger. Take a look at the build in my sig and see if it helps.
  5. Thank you I swapped power supply to a CORSAIR 750W and yes monitor is 1080p
