Need advice on ~1200 dollar PC

PC purpose: High end gaming, study, internet surfing.

I am purchasing from PC case gear.

CPU: Intel Core i5 3750k
$229

GPU: Gigabyte Radeon HD7870
$249

MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H
Heard LOTS of good things about this mobo
$129

CPU cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO
$35

PSU: Antec High Current Gamer 620W Modular HCG-620M
I'm not too sure on my PSU. Is the wattage too low? Is it overkill? Could I get a better deal? Is it still fine with OC'ing?
$115

RAM: Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B 2*4GB DDR3
$46

Storage:
Western Digital WD Black 500GB
$89
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SSD
$129

Case: CoolerMaster CM 690 II Advanced Black & White edition
$125
I know it's a hefty price, but I'd like to stick to it if possible.

Total:
$1146

I'm trying to keep the price as low as possible, but I don't want to cheap out ANYWHERE.

I'm also hunting for a ~150 dollar HDMI capable monitor around 23 inches.
If you could suggest some that would be great.

Thanks for your time.
