Couple of things

1. The Mobo you picked supports Sata at speeds of 6gb/s so get a HDD that can handle that speed.

Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

2. You don't need a 700w PSU with that system. You'll be lucky to push over 300w at 90% utilization maybe 400w overclocking that CPU. Unless you plan on Crossfire/SLI I would downgrade the PSU to something in the 500w range, and upgrade the GPU to a Radeon HD 6850 or 6870.

3. You have a 2500k and the intel cooler won't handle too much overclocking. For a decent entry level Cooler check out the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212
