Please Critique: First build in over 10 years

Hi everyone,

This is my first build in a long long time! I've done quite a bit of research on a Upper-Mid Level gaming PC, and this is what I've come up with:

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k

Mobo: MSI Z77A-G45 LGA 1155 Intel Z77

GPU: MSI N680GTX Twin Frozr

Memory: Corsair Vengeance Blue 16GB DDR3

SSD: Crucial 128 GB

Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750

Case: Corsair Graphite Series 600T

CPU Fan: Cooler Master 212 EVO

(Already had a 500gb HD that I'll be using as a Data Drive)

I also just bought this 27 Inch Asus Monitor:

Thanks for your input guys!

  1. If your building a gaming Pc then there are a few things that you can change.
    You won't need 16gb of ram because while playing a game you won't use more than 6gb so if you want to cut cost a little then you can go with an 8gb set.
    If you are planning on getting another video card later on for SLI then the 750w is a good idea but if you are only going with one and won't be adding a second card then a 650w would be sufficient.
    The GTX whils a very good card is matched in pwerformance by the GTX 670 and is $100 less. I don't know the reasoning behind this but for some reason Nvidia has put out two cards with almost the same performance and one is a lot more expensive , so you can save yourself $100 by going with the GTX 670.

    MSI N670 PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    This SSD has a much better write speed than the Crucial;

    SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128B/WW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    I use Newegg for listing choices because it's easier to look at one place so if you find things cheaper on Amazon then that's great.
