Hey, this is my first build and I don't want to mess it up. I'm sure all the components work together, but just to make sure, I'm gonna post it here.

Case: CM Storm Trooper
Motherboard: AsRock Z77 extreme4
CPU: i5 3570K
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
RAM/Memory: corsair cml16gx3m4a1600c9b (low profile)
Graphics card: Gigabyte windforce OC 7870 (I might go CF in the future)
Drive 1: Vertex 4 128 GB
Drive 2: Seagate Barracuda 2 tb
PSU: 620 Watts Antec green power or something
Optical Drive: just a random one, i'll choose later
(tell me if i forgot something)
Thanks for answering in advance :)

All the components are good and will work together.
From the looks of it this is a gaming rig? Then I advise to drop the RAM to 8GB as thats all you need for gaming.
If Crossfire is a possibility later (which is adequately supported on that mobo), you will want a 750W PSU.

Pretty good rig.

Thanks :)  I think I'll keep it at 16 gigs though, to make it stand out. My components are almost the same as your one :D 
Thanks :D
