Hello, this is my first build and I'm still way open to suggestions. I plan on gaming with this PC as well as daily use movies/web. Not only is this my first build but my PC (hardware) understanding is not that great, though has improved greatly over the last few days. So I guess what I really am asking is, is this all compatible? and is it a solid gaming setup? Thanks in advance for any input

Looks like a very good build. You sure you don't want the unlocked 3570K processor? You went with liquid cooling and a z77 boards so something tells me you had overclocking in mind.
