For what purpose? If just gaming, can drop down to the 3570 (K if you want to overclock) and a much, much cheaper mobo like the ASRock Extreme4 (Pro4 if you do not plan to SLI). May take th savings to buy an SSD - best. investment. ever.

Downgrade the power supply to a 620 W.

SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - 86.99

Seasonic produces very good power supply's. And frankly you don't need 700W for one GTX 670.

Also is there a good reason why you need an i7? If you just plan on gaming then go for something like this.

If you overclock:

If you dont:

Also 16 GB of RAM is a bit of an overkill unless you plan on running multiple VM's. 8 GB of 1600 Mhz should do you good.

Also you might consider an SSD for your OS/Games. They are leaps and bounds faster than a HDD.

Everything else looks great!

Good luck and happy building,

oh and by the way is CPU compatible with the Motherboard?

No you will need a 1155 socket motherboard for any of the Ivy Bridge/Sandy Bridge CPU's.

Here's what I recommend for your needs:

This motherboard has been reviewed in the mid-range z77 priced motherboard reviews and has proven to hold it's own against similarly priced motherboards.
