Pc build advice, almost done!

Hello! I have (finally) decided to buy a new PC! I live in Sweden, so I am just using newegg as a reference.
My goals is mainly to play games, obviously.. But I also want as silent as possible! And I don't want a huge case either :)
I will not get a monitor or anything like that, just the computer.

This is my plan:
CPU: i5 3570k http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233144

GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 OC http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125423

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Intel Z77 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128543

SSD: Intel 520 120GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167093

PSU: XFX P1-650X-XXB9 650W modular http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207022

Case: Fractal Design Define R4 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352020

The things I am most uncertain about is the PSU and case, is it worth getting a modular one? And does all parts fit in that case without the case being to huge? Also, the standard questions:
Does these parts fit together? And is there better options for that money? Am I missing anything?
My budget is 9000 SEK, and this build is around 8700 SEK, 1 GBP ~ 10,6 SEK
In the future i plan to get a harddrive, and perhaps a better CPU cooler.
Thank you in advance!

  1. if you don't want a big case then the R4 is not for you. it is large. the R3 is a nice case and is slightly smaller (but is still a mid ATX Tower) I run a Fractal Mini and it is just the right size and runs cool (i added some fans) its uATX so you would need to change out your ATX motherboard for a uATX if you go with it. (see my sig for system specs)
    suggest:

    The XFX 650w PSU is a good choice, I prefer modular, but it easy to hide the excess cable it the Fractal cases.

    I would try to go with a Samsung 830 or a Crucial M4 for an SSD. these seem to be the best performance/cost ratio and have few issues.

    for ram, try to stay with low profile heat sinks so they won't interfere with the CPU heatsink/fan

    I would suggest a CM Gemini S524, Noctua NH-C12P SE14, or even a CM Hyper 212 evo (if going R3 or R4)
  2. After I posted I looked up the size of the R4, and that is fine. Is it a good case? The reviews I have read recommend it.

    This means that I'll stick to ATX, do I still need to change the ram?
    And is the stock CPU cooler fine to begin with?

    I would change the RAM to lp
    R4 is really nice
    the stock cooler is fine if not OC ing
  4. Does the cooling suffer much from lp?

    nope, actually they don't run hot at all. even when over clocking.
  6. Good! Should i order everything then? I have changed the SSD to crucial m4
