New Computer: Is everything compatible here?

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:

    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.
  2. 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..
  3. right now, the i5-2500 is only $5 dollars more than the i5-2320

  4. 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.
  5. Also, look at this
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130620
    it's overclocked from factory and I think it's just essentially a little better, for almost the same price.
