Will everything work fine? I'm hooking it up to a 42" Sony Bravia at 1080p.

I will probably sli/cx sometime in the future.

Strictly gaming.

Max settings diablo 3 mainly, Guild Wars 2. to get an idea.

The build (and suggestions) are good. I take issue with gaming on a TV. It may not matter for D3, but FPS's may have some trouble. TVs aren't optimized for PCs, so there's generally lag and poor coloring.
Also the edges get cut off depending on how well your particular TV handles PC input - mine cuts off a few rows of pixels from the top and bottom, which makes using the taskbar a little less friendly.

Z77 will do you no good without IB cuz all those features are going to waste. Don't let anyone convince you otherwise. SB may have some boards with PCIe 3.0, but they won't allow for it.

No optical drive, as mentioned, also no keyboard or mouse. the processor already includes a cooler, by the way

Hey guys, thanks for all the replies.

Since ive posted this up I have switched over to the i5 3570k IB, with the asrock z77 Extreme4.

I realize about the tv and how compatible it might be with some pc inputs, but we'll give it a try anyways. If anything I can always upgrade the TV.

I didn't include an optical drive cuz thats not really all that important as the rest of the parts. Plus its cheap as ***.

And yes it does have a cooler but as stated when i finally pull the trigger and get it oc'd its there. plus cant really go wrong with some extra cooling.

Thanks for all the tips.
