After researching and LOTS of reading I have come up with a computer build I think is pretty good, But I wanted other opinions on what I have..

Case: NZXT Phantom 410 SE - Gunmetal | GBP£89 | USD$141
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V PRO | £140 | $222
RAM: Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 Bengeance Blue 1600 | £31 | $49
Processor: Intel Core i5 3570K | £179 | $284
Processor cooling: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo | £27 | $43
PSU: Corsair GS-700w | £73 | $116
SSD: Samsung 830 128GB | £78 | $124
GPU: XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB | £119 | $189
Total with Delivery : £746.20 | $231.74

My question is, Should I take the SSD off and upgrade the GPU (using my current 250GB 7200 HDD instead)?
Or, Is there anything that wont work or you would change?

I'd love to see Radeon 7870 in this build.
Also, that PSU is too much, any 80 plus bronze 500-550W is enough. GEt quality one from Antec, Seasonic, XFX, Corsair or PC Power and Cooling, Silverstone.
You gonna be overclocking right?

Is there any particular PSU you would recommend? I picked Corsair GS because I have seen many good reviews.

I will be overclocking.. No idea by how much since I've never done it before, But i understand the CM Hyper should let me get reasonable overclocking temps
