Hello i am going to purchase a pc as soon as i find out if all the parts are compatible or not, so here we go:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77-D3H
RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600MHz
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 500GB
GPU: VTX3D Black 7870 Tahiti LE
Case: Corsair Carbide 200R
PSU: Corsair CX600
Optical Drive: LiteOn 24x IHAS124-04

Are all these parts compatible and are all the parts well made?

Thanks

EDIT: I am ordering these parts from www.aria.co.uk , are they a reliable site?

Are you planning on overclocking? If so, you might want to get a better cpu cooler, like the Cooler Master 212 Evo. If you do go this route, might want to make sure that the memory heat spreader will not interfere with the aftermarket cpu cooler.

I don't know how to overclock, i was thinking of going with the i5-3470 instead but i'm not sure which motherboard would go well with it, could you suggest one please?

Motherboard is fine, but if you're not going to overclock than you can save a few dollars by getting the next-step down i5 cpu. I'd stick with a Z77 chipset motherboard if the Intel processor is Ivy Bridge.
