Please Verify Compatibility

Hello, all.

My Uncle has asked me to build a PC for his wife for Christmas. The budget is $1500, and listed below are the parts I chose. The point of this thread is solely to verify the compatibility of the parts I selected. I am not really open to suggested alternative components because I'll be buying from a local Microcenter which may not have the same prices you'd find online (this is time-sensitive and risking receiving DOA components from online shopping isn't an option).

My main concern is that the RAM's Mfr Part # wasn't listed on the Asrock motherboard memory support list ( However, I've read on forums that this RAM works fine with this motherboard.

CASE: $180 Corsair Graphite Series 600T

MOBO: $95 Asrock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155
(microcenter has a $40 off bundle deal for the mobo + cpu)
CPU: $190 Intel Core i5 3570k 3.4Ghz Quad Core Processor

CPU COOLER: $30 Hyper 212 EVO Universal CPU Cooler

RAM: $70 Corsair Vengeance 2 x 8GB 1600mhz modules

PSU: $100 Thermaltake SMART Series 750 Watt ATX Modular Power Supply

SDD (boot drive): $110 Samsung 830 128GB SATA III 6Gb/s

HDD: $110 Segate Barracuda 2TB 7.2k RPM SATA III 6Gb/s 3.5" hard drive,200_SATA_6Gb-s_35_Internal_Hard_Drive_ST2000DM001

VIDEO CARD: $300 EVGA Nvidia GTX 660 Ti 2GB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 Video Card
