Hey guys, i'm going to build my own pc and i'd like to know if these are all compatible and if it will be powerful enough to run games such as Crysis and the new Far Cry 3 on full.

Case: Antec 300 Three Hundred or Gigabyte GZ-G2 Gaming Case Plus with USB 3.0 Ports & 2 Front Fans

Processor: i5 3570k 3.4GHz

Motherboard: Gigabyte ga-z77-d3h

RAM: Patriot G2 Series 8GB (2x4GB) PGD38G1600ELK CAS 9 Dual Channel 1600MHz DDR3 Memory

Graphics Cards: Nvidia GTX 580 1.5GB

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 32MB Cache Hard Drive SATA 6Gb/s 8.5ms 7200rpm
(i'm not sure the difference between 32mb and 64mb cache)

Power Supply: Pure Power L8 CM - 630 Watt

Cooling: Arctic Cooling Freezer i30

DVD Burner: Sony AD-7280S-0B 24x DVD+/-RW SATA

Will all this work together for a very decent gaming pc? All feedback is very appreciated!!
Many thanks

Change the PSU for one from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic, other reputable brands, it is way too important of a component to skimp on.

I have to agree on the 580, just get like g-unit1111 said a 670 gtx or 7970.
As for the rest you'll be fine with the corsair psu, also the cpu cooler is a good one for it's price it performs like the hyper 212 evo but it's less noisy.

I've had Arcitc Cooling fans - the one I most recently used was a gigantic POS - it was poorly made and broke very easily. I'd go with a 212 Evo or something better.

I also wouldn't touch that power supply with a 10 foot pole, this would be better:

See the reviews all around the web(there are plenty), all around it's a good cooler, the hyper 212 evo is also a good one but it is overrated and it's noisy.
Now for the psu the corsair tx650 is a good psu, he doesn't need more expensive psu.
