I'm getting ready to build a new computer and I wanted to make sure all of my parts were compatible with each other. Can anyone here double check my components and/or offer any advice?

Here's what I'm planning:

  • ASUS P8Z77-V LX ATX Intel Motherboard
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

  • Intel Core i5-2320 3.0GHz (3.3GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 Quad-Core Desktop Processor
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

  • G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

  • EVGA GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 012-P3-1570-AR Video Card
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

  • CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W High Performance Power Supply
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

  • Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming Computer Case
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E168...

    Any help or advice would be much appreciated!

    Everything is indeed compatible. I would like to make a suggestion. Your power supply is way to big. The higher end systems only draw about 500w. I would recommend getting a 500w power supply and using the money you save to buy a better video card. if you save about 60$ with your power supply you should be able to get a 7870 which is a more powerful card and will be much better for games.

    Drop the power supply to 600W- 650W .... 500W is not enough to you GTX570
    and you better wait for i5-3570K Ivy Bridge may around $239 range...

    you GTX570 is in good price range Only $299 if you wantto save a little bit go down to 7850 ... 7870 looks too expensive... but 7850 is only $249 range..

    i suppose having a high watt psu could be a good thing if you plan on upgrading to sli or crossfire, and the 670 isnt the gpu i would choose its a little over priced for what you get, although things cost alot more in the uk so it might not be the case.
