Hi, I'm Andrew and I live in Taiwan. I would like to ask you guys if my parts are compatible and if there are parts that work just as well or better but cheaper.

I would like to know some tips while building the PC, thanks! :) 

Case: Corsair Carbide 500r white

Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 LGA1155

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge

RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3-8GB (4GBx2) CL9

GPU: MSI R7850 Power Edition 2GD5/OC

SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K 120G 2.5" SATA III

Power Supply: Aopen 600W 80Plus Bronze Nagas (AO600-12AB5)

My build is around 1011 USD (29258NTD) and I wish it to be below 900 USD.

Getting that case would be a little over budget.
And the CPU is Non-k Model, so your Mobo is waste.
Power Supply is Utter crap. Don't trust those Brands.
And I suggest you to drop that SSD to a 64GB. And surely prefer a Better brand like OCZ\Samsung for a SSD, Kingston is bad at SSD.

Case: 300R

CPU: i5 3570k

PSU: Corsair CX600

And with the saved money get a 7870\660 or keep it. ;)

Corsair should be fine.

Just check the Review of your Chosen SSD before buying.
