It's all compatible, and it will all work, but I'd get the 7870 instead of the 660.

I would, but the 7870 is a bit out of my price range. But besides that, is there any other part i should get instead of one i put?

^ It should be in the same price range lol.

You could get a cheaper case, to fit it in if its really out of reach. (The Corsair 300R is one of the best bang for your buck cases out there)
