Hello,
I am building a computer in the next month, and i am wondering if all these components are compatible. I would also lioke to know if there is anything better for the same price:

I5 3750k

ASROCK z68 extreme3 rev3

HD 5770 (used from old build and will be upgrading to 660 in the near future)

Samsung 830 120gb ssd

500gb 7200rpm hdd WD black (from old build)

Actic freezer 7 rev.2

Antec 900 case

X22 dvd-rw (from old build)

2x4gb Kingston hyperX 1600mhz memory

i have a 24" full hd led monitor

Mouse: G500
Keyboard: G110

I will be wanting to overclock the i5 to 4.0ghz to begin with, and sli the 660 in the future. Is everything in order?

And in advance thank you....

if you are to upgrade from a 5770, i wouldnt get the 660. id go higher and get the 670 since there is a massive increase in performance.

Yeah i might do that but it all depends on finaces between now and christmas... Would crossfiring the 5770 for a short while be a good idea as i can find them for £75

Agreed, get the 670. You can still SLI later and have amazing performance. The rest of your build looks fine as long as you have a decent power supply.

Upgrading from a 5770 to a 660 is certainly worthwhile. 5770 vs 660 Comparison

Of course the 670 is a faster card, but it also costs almost twice as much.

I wouldn't be spending that much money on outdated technology. If you can get a cheap used 5770 it might be worthwhile.

If you can afford 670, get it.
If not, get 660 and look to SLI later.
Don't crossfire 5770, this only delays the inevitable.
