as everyone else has said, it should all be compatible. Though might I suggest a full tower? (If you have room) It just makes future upgrading so much easier when you don't have to worry about space constraints. Though then you'd have to check to make sure that power supply has sufficient cable length for your necessary plug-ins.

+1 ^ sure a full tower is better for a number of reasons. And it looks better too!
But a mid tower will do the job just fine

Could get away with a much smaller PSU if no upgrades are planned.

Live near a MicroCenter? They are still runnning the cpu/motherboard bundle. Basically, buy a K series chip and get an instant $50 any Z77 board. Chips there are much cheaper in the first place - so, you can save alot of money. I am using the 500R with no complaints.

Thanks a lot guys,

Yes, I will be upgrading in the future but this is it for now - budget constraints
Future upgrade would be
- Gaming graphics and a sound card
-SSD ( when it becomes cheaper :)  )
-27inch IPS monitor


would a 600w smps suffice for the above ?
and should i go for a better heat sink ? as i have read about overheating issues with i7 3770K while overclocking.


@just4today - I live in India and we don't have such discounts :(

Don't let anybody talk you out of a large PSU. Call it an insurance policy.

Your build is fine,don't be cheap on the psu, better risk somewhere else...like less ram and storage.
