Does this build work?

Does the following build work? By "work", I mean, are all the parts compatible, and will all the parts fit in my case? Thanks!

Case: Xclio A380FULLYBLACK (Full ATX Tower)

Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Gene LGA

Graphics Card: EVGA Nvidia GTX 670 2GB

Power Supply: Antec CP-850 850W

RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws 8GB DDR3

Processor: Intel Core i5 3.4 GHz

DVD Burner: Asus Bulk 24X

HDD: Western Digital 250GB


Monitor: Sony 32" 1080p HDTV

A couple of things:
1. I MUST use this TV, which means the graphics card needs to have a HDMI port, which it does.
2. Is it a good idea that I have a SSD AND an HDD?
3. Does this graphics card fit in my case? (I had a VERY hard time fitting my power supply into my case..)
4. Does everything else fit in the case?

    Answering your questions:
    It is a good idea for an ssd for (os and program loads) and HDD for storage
    YOur GPU is 10" long so it will fit in that full tower case
    Everything will fit in that case - you can have 7 internal and 5 externals drives in that case
    You do not have an operating system listed - go with windows 7 64 bit
    That will be a real nice setup btw - good luck
  3. Wow, thanks guys for the quick replies. I appreciate it! And yes, I'm using Windows 7 64-bit.

  5. My only comment is that it's a small HDD for the price.
    Consider this:
    Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB $75 + Free Shipping
  6. Want to save money?

    Get a cheaper...
    -case. You don't need a full tower. Most mid-towers will be more than big enough for 1 or 2 GTX 670s (I am running one GTX 670 in a Cooler Master HAF 912 case - mid tower - fits just fine).
    -motherboard. Get a cheaper motherboard like the ASrock Extreme4. Unless that motherboard you listed has some features you really want, that is.
    -PSU. 500-550W is enough to run 1x 670, 750W is enough to run 2x 670.

    Also, what about the same HDD with 2x the storage space for 5$ more? WD 500GB.

    I know you're not asking to save money, but thought you maybe would :)
