Hey I'm getting ready to order my first computer. Will these parts all work together? And assemble properly when I try and put it together? http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/aEbS

Get a 7200 rpm HDD as 5400 will bottleneck the OS. Newegg sells those for cheaper.

All of your parts are compatible and assembly should be fairly easy. Watch lots of how to videos.
Enjoy your build

They still make 5400 rpm HDD's? I didn't even catch that...

Caviar Green = 5400 rpm, so yes they do. :p 

Caviar Green is only good for storage.

Get a 7200 RPM HDD and a 3.5" should be cheaper. (Is there a reason you chose a laptop HDD?) 7200 RPM is pretty much a standard now and it makes a difference for hardly any more. I personally bought a used 1TB 7200 rpm REFURBISHED HDD for $75 on newegg, if you want to go that route. The PSU looks fine but just make sure the load is dispersed across both rails. I have to mention the "Ivy Bridge is newer", but honestly, I really don't see any reason to go with either over the other. But looks great other than the Hard Drive.

You have a Z77 motherboard yet have a 2500k Core I-5.

I suggest you spend the $10 extra to get the ivy bridge 3570k Core I-5.

It's better, but Caviar Blacks are expensive right now.
