Ok so I'm building my first pc soon and wanted to know if this was ok...
I'm planning on using this as a gaming rig and want to know if these parts go good together. Also i plan on overclocking the i5.

Case- Antec 300
PSU- Rosewill Green Series 630w
Motherboard- ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Ram- Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133
GPU- Gigabyte Geforce GTX 670
CPU- Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge
CPU Cooler- COOLER MASTER Hyper 212
HDD- Western Digital AV-GP WD3200AUDX 320GB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
SSD- Crucial M4 6gb/s 64gb
Wifi Card- Rosewill RNX-N250PCe
Dvd Drive- LITE-ON Black SATA DVD-ROM Drive

Also will my gpu be able to fit inside the case as it's a really big card..

It should fit 11" however you likely wont be able to use that hard drive slot.

The M4 128gb keeps going on sale for $99 - its definitely worth the extra $40 for the larger system drive. (I have the 128 and it really only fits windows and a few games -- the 64 would basically only fit windows)

While I'm sure the Rosewill is fine, I'm really picky about my power supplies and would suggest something from Seasonic (the best), Corsair, Antec, etc that has high efficiency. You will note that the PSU you suggested has a 2 year warranty, while those from the brands suggested will be 3-5. High quality and efficiency will help keep heat down in addition to the obvious merits.

A good choice that I saw today on a silver certified model from a good brand (with a SEVEN year warranty!):
Newegg has the PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W ATX Power Supply for $69.99 Free Shipping after both rebate and Coupon Code: "EMCNCNE45" (Exp 7/11). http://www.techbargains.com/jump.cfm?clkSubId=C305696C0...

As someone with an Antec case, and someone who has built multiple PCs with both Cooler Master and Antec, I recommend the HAF 912.

It's priced in-line with the 300, and has overall better features.
