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:

ASUS P8Z77-V LX ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i5-2320 3.0GHz (3.3GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 Quad-Core Desktop Processor

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory

EVGA GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 012-P3-1570-AR Video Card

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W High Performance Power Supply

Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming Computer Case

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.
  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
    it's overclocked from factory and I think it's just essentially a little better, for almost the same price.
