So i'm building a new computer for my self it is my first one, I know a little bit about building a PC and i just need help to see what parts I am missing. I will be using this PC for gaming.

Processor-Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155
Case-NZXT Phantom 410 Mid Tower USB 3.0 Gaming Case
Ram-Corsair 16GB Dual Channel DDR3 SODIMM Memory Kit
Motherboard-ASUS P8Z77-V LX LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Video Card-Axle3D nVidia GeForce GT 630 4GB DDR3 128 bit PCI Express w/ VGA + DVI + HDMI Video Card
Power Supply-Coolmax V-500 Series 500W 120mm ATX Power Supply
Fan-Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan

I need help picking out a hard-drive (I prefer 1TB-2TB) and I need to know if I am missing some parts. Right now this build is about $650 and I don't want to go past $800. Also please recommend anything you want.

For gaming, if you can afford it, a 7870 or better will handle most games on ultra settings. If you cant get that, a 7770 will do nicely. Ditch the 16gb ram, only get 8gb max.
