Hey guys this is my first ever computer build and I would love it if someone would look it over real quick and see if it looks good or if there are any problems with it.

My Build:
i5 3570k
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Kingston Hyper X 8gb 1600
WD Caviar Black 1tb
Gigabyte GeForce 660 2gb
Antec Three Hundred Two
Corsair HX 650 watt power supply
Sony DVD drive

Hopefully it will all be good. Also any advice where you think I should change something would also be appreciated.

Kingston Hyper X 8gb 1600 <--- re-check and make sure it is not 1,65v ram
intel favors 1,5v ram

WD Caviar Black 1tb <-- seagate is often cheaper with similar performace, black doenst add anything. same 7200 rpm

Also regarding the seagate barracuda I have heard that they have drive problems and crash a lot.

Why do you think the 7870 is better?
