:hello:  Right so basicially, I need to find out if these components will work together and fit in the case. also if there's any recommendations to other parts better and cheaper.. I've taken computers apart and used thermal paste before ect, but this is my first complete build. DO I NEED TO PUT THERMAL PASTE ON THE PROCESSOR? If so will the thermal paste below work?

List of components:-

You do not need to purchase any thermal compound if you're not going to overclock. And even then if you buy an extra fan like the Hyper 212 Evo - the paste included is way better than Arctic Silver.

That PSU is way overkill for that setup - you could theoretically go with a really strong 550W PSU for a 660TI. And then it's also pointless to purchase a P67 motherboard anymore - go with an H77 and an i5-3450.

Thanks man:)  So could i use the H77 Motherboard and get a 550W PSU and use the rest of the components I've listed?

Yup. That will work. Make sure you use the i5-3450 - there's no reason to get anything else between that and the 3570K. You could probably also scale back the case a bit - the C70 is nice and Corsair makes great cases but it's way overkill for this setup. You could go with a 300R and save some money there.

:) Thanks soo much, I'll look forward to doing my first build:)  (pretty much lol)
I guess your right about the case and some of the components, I got exicted, and went a bit over the top lol.
