Help me build my first gaming computer

Hello,
Can you guys help me build my new computer? I'm building this computer for gaming and little bit of video editing.

Things that I already bought:
1. 600 watts PS with 80 gold
2. 500GB hard drive
3.I am thinking of i7-3770k for my processor
4. 4 fans for my tower

Things that I need help getting:
1. Motherboard (decent motherboard that will go with 3770k)
2. Full size tower (something that has good air flow, I bought 4 fans already)
3. Video card (budget is around $300, I want to play almost all games in max setting if possible)
4. 8 GB ram (does it matter what kind of ram I get?)

If I want to overclock my CPU, do I need after market fan for my CPU?

  4. I bought 2550k, will that be good for overclocking and running games in max setting (of course getting good video card as well)
