*UPDATE* Having problems... please refer to latest post*

Hey all, this is my first ever build... My old prebuilt is getting quite old and am in need of an upgrade. I will use it to game primarily, not looking for SLI, and will do minimal OC'ing. However, I have never put one together and need to know how I did. Here's what I have, mostly from Newegg. I do not need any monitor, keyboards or mice. Just the core components and an OS.

-Rosewill Challenger Mid ATX Tower http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-Corsair Enthusiast 650W PS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-EVGA 660ti FTW http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Free Assassins Creed III

-i5 3570k (would like to OC to 4.2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-212 Hyper Cooler+

-Crucial Ballisitix Sport 8gb 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-Samsung DVD Burner http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

-Windows 7 Home 64bit

-1TB Seagate HDD 7200

-ASrock z77 Pro4 1155 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total Price after MIR is $1,000....

Are the parts compatible? Thanks!

I thought the main difference is the extreme supports multiple GPU's? I will be using only one. Correct me if I am wrong

*UPDATE* Hey guys, I ended up getting the build and it doesn't work with the video card. It runs, the fans come on the card, and it looks fine but I am getting NO signal. I took out the video card then updated MOBO and installed windows 7 from the built in motherboard. I then tried putting back in the card and it still fails. I see that the card requires MINIMUM of 450 watts could that be it, I need a bigger PSU? Please help!!!! :(
