New High End Budget Build?

I'm getting some money and I really need to upgrade my 2009 Dell Desktop, these are the parts i'm thinking about getting, and I just want to make sure everything is compatible, if someone wouldn't mind looking over them :).

Case: COOLER MASTER HAF X Blue Edition - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119239

GPU: MSI GTX 670 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127685

CPU: Intel i5-3570k - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

Ram: 8gb 1866 Corsair Dominator Platinum - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233284

HDD: (going to use my 500gb one in my current PC)

SSD: 128g OCz Vector Series - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227915

Optical Drive: $20 DVD Drive, nothing special - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204

PSU: Corsair Professional Series HX650 650W Modular - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139012

Motherboard: ASUS Maximus V Gene z77 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131830

CPU Cooler: Corsair h100i - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181032

Notes: I know the tower is full/e-atx, I just like the look, and it has good air flow, so I don't think it will be a big deal, and I know the Dominator Platinum ram is overkill, and vengeance would probably be just as good, once again, I really like the look. I'm planning on OC-ing my 3570k to ~4.2-4.5 GHz. I'm open to any suggestions :).

  1. Your build looks good, Vengeance's would do just as well but that's up to you if look is important. As for the SSD, OCZ aren't excatly known for their SSD quality.
  2. do you recommend Samsung 840? I really want an SSD for like 2-3 games and as a boot drive. I had just head that OCz had gotten their act together with the Vector :P.

    The OCZ Vertex 4 128gb is really good. But if price isn't a problem, which it probably isn't due to the fact you are getting the dominator platinum and the HAF-X, the Samsung 840 Pro is a great choice, amazingly fast and reliable.
  4. My bad, I thought that said Vertex, the Crucial M4 SSDs are quite good IMO.
