Hey, I planning on building my first PC and I was hoping I could get some certification that the parts I've picked out will work together.

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570k (3.4GHz):

Motherboard: Asus P8H61-MX USB3:

RAM: 16 GB (2x8GB) Corsair Vengeance:

Cooling: CoolerMaster Hyper-212-EVO:

Case: CoolerMaster 690 2 (nVidia Edition):

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB (SATA 3) 3.5":

Power Supply: Corsair CMPSU-750W ATX:

Graphic Card: PowerColor Radeon HD 6770 (Already own):

Any help would be much appreciated.

Get a Z77 board, that H61 is pretty old and wont support Ivy Bridge CPU's without a BIOS update (which ou need a Sandy CPU to do)
A Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H or AsRock Z77 Extreme4 will be good.

You can half the RAM to 8GB. Also get a low profile kit like the G.Skill Ares or Corsair Vengeance LP.

I would upgrade the GPU as well, it is quite weak and will bottleneck the rest in games.
