This is my first time building a PC, so I'm sorry if I ask dumb questions. I would love it if somebody would look over this and confirm that the parts I have so far will work with each other. I really don't want to buy something only to find out I overlooked a little detail :ange:  . I am planning on using this PC mostly for gaming. I already have a moniter that runs at resolution 1600x900. In the future I am going to be looking at getting a new moniter, so I want a computer that can run high resolutions. I also already have a keyboard and mouse. Here is what I have so far:

GPU: GTX 670 FTW

or
EVGA 04G-P4-3673-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW+ 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Advice?

CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: Unknown. Any advice? I'm not completely sure how much I need. Again, I've never done this before, so I appreciate any advice.
Once I gain more experience, I may want to overclock my CPU up to around 4.0 ghz. Would that change to the power supply I need?


Case: Also unknown. Same as PSU.


HDD: Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Disk Drive: SAMSUNG DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Probably a dumb question, but do DVD burners read dvd's as well?


RAM: Kingston HyperX XMP Blu Red Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model KHX16C9B1RK2/8X
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard: ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

CPU Fan: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM3+

When all that's good and done, will this computer be any good?
Thank you a ton for helping me if you can.

Oh yeah, and my budget for the Tower and PSU combined is around $200, give or take some.
