Hello huys so I'm building a new pc, but I'm using parts from my previous computer which is the Dell Inspiron (desktop)
I have the following:

i5 2320 Sandy Bridge
8Gb RAM
1Tb of HDD
I recently got a GTX 670

My question is do these parts work with the following parts I'll be buying?

-Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77
Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-SSD: OCZ Solid 3 SLD3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC
Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
Link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002G1YPH0/ref=ox_sc_a...

-Power Supply: Cooler Master Silent Pro M Series Modular 850W
Link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002RWJGC2/ref=ox_sc_a...

I will aslo be getting the NZXT switch 810 which I knew works with the parts :) 

Let me know if these parts match. Thank you.

They are all compatible, yes.

Meh on the SSD. OCZ isn't known for being reliable, and I think you'll regret not going 120/128gb once you start filling up. You need a bigger one if you want to get the gaming benefits, not just the startup ones, from the SSD.
This guy's the one to go with, I think: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also meh on the PSU. You don't need anything like that much power even for two 670s. This one would be fine: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

two things that PSU:
1) cooler master do not make very good power supplies
2) it is WAY over kill for your system. a 550 watt is MORE than enough

TEST SYSTEM (will draw more power than that i5)
CPU: Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4.3GHz
Motherboard: EVGA X79 SLI
Hard Disk: Samsung 470 (256GB)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3-1867 4 x 4GB (8-10-9-26)

try :
SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze 520W $59.99
SILVERSTONE Strider Essential series ST60F-ES 600W $69.99
Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS $64.99

I will be doing a Sli in the future for the 670 so is it still overkill?

what is most important is the amperage on the 12 volt rail.
use (170*2+150)/12=40.83amps (i overestimated 150 watts for cpu, ssd, hd and ram)

Alright I gonna go with that, Thanks a lot mate. I'm going to get the OCZ Fatal1ty 750w because I'll be adding lots of parts in the near future. is it good enough looking at the OCZ Fatal1ty 750w and the Corsair Enthusiast 750w.

OCZ Fatal1ty 750 W Power Supply Review
Corsair TX750M Power Supply Review
the review of the TX is modular but would would believe the results would be the same.

if you want a little room to grow, thats great. however going overkill on a PSU can have consequences as bad as too little power. ie. you do not want to idle @ less than 20% of the PSUs max load, it sits there getting hot doing nothing.

If you had this yesterday or the day before, you could have caught a seasonic x 750w gold cert for 120$ free shipping =X
