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): http://ark.intel.com/products/65520/Intel-Core-i5-3570K...

Motherboard: Asus P8H61-MX USB3: http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8H61...

RAM: 16 GB (2x8GB) Corsair Vengeance: http://ijk.com.au/branch/ijk/product_info.php?products_...

Cooling: CoolerMaster Hyper-212-EVO: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6741

Case: CoolerMaster 690 2 (nVidia Edition): http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=...

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB (SATA 3) 3.5": http://www.seagate.com/internal-hard-drives/desktop-har...

Power Supply: Corsair CMPSU-750W ATX: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Graphic Card: PowerColor Radeon HD 6770 (Already own): http://www.powercolor.com/au/products_features.asp?id=3...

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks,

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.
