Opinions on my build before I buy.

So guys I have got a lot of great insight in the past here and you guys have helped me determine the parts to my future build.
I just want your opinions on the build.

Case-I will be using the Haf-912 That is pretty much in stone because its freaking awesome and only 50$ on amazon

CPU- I have not heard great things about the new IB line with very high overclock temperature and I don't think they are so much of a step up from SB. I have heard the "tick tock" theory and I do plan on overclock so I will go with the sandy bridge i5 2500k unless someone can really convince me that IB will be that much greater.

Aftermarket heatsink- Hyper 212 EVO

GPU- Sapphire Radeon 7870

MOBO- Currently I have my eyes on the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H but am open to suggestions for a board around 160$

PSU- I do believe that 600W will supply my power needs for my build PLEASE correct me if I need to upgrade to 700W

HDD- Currently I have a 1tb had drive that I plan on using and in the future I will upgrade and buy a SSD for caching/boot drive

ODD-simple dvd drive

More about opinions build
  1. You need RAM .
    2 x4 gig of 1600 Mhz , running at 1.5 volts or less

    www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm
    for sizing your power supply .
    You will run and even OC a comp like that with a single 7870 on only 500 watts .
    600 can give you substantial head room
  2. 600W is enough
