I want to know if the ones I have chose are good together. Note that I am only buying Red and Black Hardware because It must match. I will be buying everything listed below tomorrow but the graphics card which will be bought a month later, I will be using a old 430GT for the time being. (Reason is because some parts are going out of stock, or raising in price, before I can get the money to buy it all at once)

Intel Core i5 3570K
ASRock Z77 Performance LGA - Changed
Patriot Memory Sector 5 G Series 8GB(2x4 GB)
OCZ Fatal1ty 750W Modular Gaming Power Supply
Corsair Obsidian 650D Case
EVGA GeForce GTX670 2GB

$250 are going to fans, Corsair H70, and 2TB HDD

Very cool, very powerful, but I think the Asus Maxamus boards are ridiculously overpriced for a microATX board. Up to you, but I'd be looking for a full size ATX.

If you can find me a motherboard with a Z77 chip set, USB & PCI-e 3.0, and is red and black for cheaper, by all means please do :) 

It doesn't necessarily need to be Z77. If the Z68 is compatible, that will work too :)
