$1000 new build-compatibility

Hi there. I was wondering if someone could give me advice about this build. I posted one on here yesterday, but I realized that it was too expensive..

I went with a lower-end GPU to use until around March.
Any recommendations?

Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core

CPU Cooler
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing


G.Skill Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM

Video Card
Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 1GB

Cooler Master HAF 922 ATX Mid Tower

Power Supply
Corsair 750W ATX12V / EPS12V

Optical Drive
Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer

Also, I was going to use the Asrock Z77 Extreme4, but I read several bad reviews on it..can anyone tell me if I should just get it instead?

    Thanks, but I am quite set on the 7770. I can get a better card in a few months.

    I don't need to play on Max settings, I am fine with medium for now since I don't have a gaming pc at all.
  7. this sabertooth is a completely a waste of money , i recommend going with the gigabyte Z77X-UD3H or UD5H another thing made me confused on your build why 750W you are not going to sli/crossfire so a quality 600W psu will be more than enough. like the
