Will someone look over this for compatibility, check for glaring errors, tell me if it will be a good gaming setup (hopefully maxing out games), and make any suggestions, if need be? Can someone confirm that 650 W will be enough to power?
Is this everything I should have? I'm just now starting to get into computers, so excuse me if I am not terribly knowledgeable. This is what I came up with in my research:

I'm a little worried about it all fitting in the case I chose, can someone confirm if it will?
Also, dumb question, but will the DVD burner read DVD as well?

HDD: Western Digital WD Black 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW+ 4GB

PSU: Corsair TX Series 650W

Mobo: ASRock Z77 extreme3 LGA 1155

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 240 pin ddr3 1600 (2 x 4gb)

CPU Fan: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

Do you live near a microcenter ? I think best pair i5 with a 670.
The i5 3470 is at 149.99$ and the i5-3570k at 169.99$ in the microcenter.
If theres any, ditch the hyper 212 cooler and buy the i5-3470 on newegg.
Ditch that gpu for this one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Unless you have a resolution superior than 1080p its not worth it.

The corsair psu will do.
