Is this Build ok ? plus need some help

First i apologize for my bad English
This is my first PC that i will build by my own hands.

CPU: Intel i7 3770K
(I was thinking of buying a Coolermaster V10 and i need someone to tell me how high can i Overclock this baby
with the coolermaster as long as it stays on reasonable temps.)
GPU:Gainward GTX 680 2Gb
RAM:CORSAIR Vengeance DDR3 SDRAM 4x4GB 1600MHz
(But i am not sure if the coolermaster will fit because these have heatsinks so if someone could
tell me if that is possible.If not there is another option: G.Skill 4x5GB 1600MHz without heatsinks)
Power supply:: MSI PRO-550 ATX (I think i need a new one but dont know which one is the best for lowest money)
Case: Trendsonic WxHxL 20x43x40
M/B: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Storage: WD caviar green WD20EARX 2TB
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

Just tell if i did something wrong

  1. What are you using this system for, If gaming get rid of the i7 put a i5 3570k with either a coolermaster Evo 212+ or a Liquid cooling system
  2. What's the budget and what's the primary use for this system going to be? If it's gaming you don't need the i7 or 16GB of RAM. Also that PSU will be significantly underpowered for a GTX 680, and it's a waste to get Windows 7 Ultimate unless you need the language packs or XP emulation mode. Pro or Home Premium will cover everything you need for the most part.

    Ok so this PC is for gaming and video editing/3d rendering.(But i am not a PRO like i am editing all day and night, it is still mostly for gaming)
    I know i have to buy a new PSU.Can you reccomend a good not overpriced one?
    And I already have Windows 7 Ultimate.

    I choose an i7 3770K Simply because it was 100$ cheaper.
    And will the coolermaster fit with those RAM sticks?
  5. If you bought Low Profile sticks yes they will fit.

    How is an i7 cheaper than an i5?

    I7 3770k is 100 more then the i5

    It should if you got low profile RAM. What store are you buying from? I can suggest links if I knew that.

    I didn't buy it there.
    Im from croatia and i bought it on an E-bay-like site where you can find things alot cheaper.
    And it is brand new with a stock cooler.

    Here: http://www.centro.hr/kategorije.dac976f6fb3d4819a1f634feb3585392.napajanja.aspx?page=1&sort=PRICE_DESC
    If you want in USD just divide by 6,2.

    The lower the number, the better :)

    one more question is it worth buying an 128GB SSD?

    Strange - most of the RAM on that site is listed at 1.65V, you need 1.5V for most any Sandy / Ivy Bridge build, maybe try something like this: http://www.centro.hr/detalji_proizvoda.d33d8e2246b344a1a551942b88df83db.desktop-memory-device-corsair-xms3-ddr3-sdram-2x8gb-1600mhz-pc3-12800-intel-extreme-memory-profile.aspx

    Thanks
    But isn't it better to have a quad channel memory?
    Also try to find me a good PSU if you can.

    btw here are some other sites:

    Quad channel RAM is only for X79 systems where you need the extra channels to get the most out of it.

    On a Z77 / Z68 system you'll need dual channel RAM.

    Try something like this - it meets the specifications: http://www.portio.hr/index.php?page=artikl&id=051210243

    2 x 8GB will give you more room for expansion. Just make sure that it is 1.5V and low profile.

    Ok.
    But i was searching a bit more and found these Motherboards.
    Can you please tell me which one is the best because if i buy the Z77 one i dont have enough money
    for the PSU.

    Are these going to do just fine?

    I have not heard good things about that particular model. Maybe try something like this instead: http://www.centro.hr/detalji_proizvoda.1439350f0a7f4b4290c1730cea8584cf.napajanje-seasonic-ss-620gb-620w.aspx

    If this one isnt good then i will probably buy that one thanks.

    And because i wouldnt want to open another thread what do you think is better

    http://www.portio.hr/index.php?page=artikl&id=050903234

    I think the 612S is a little big so i dont know will it fit with that RAM.
    But it is better then 212 EVO

    BTW i was thinking on overclocking that i7 3770k @4.0GHz or maybe 4.3GHz
    Which one is enough for that?

    I definitely would not trust that PSU - stick with the Seasonic.

    The Evo is a bit more flexible in terms of the cases it will fit in. The 612 is a bit bigger but you won't notice a whole lot of difference in terms of how your CPU overclocks.

    Anything beyond 4.5 is pretty much overkill.
