Will these parts make a good rig? Will I need a liquid cooling system? Any opinions are welcome

Your motherboard and CPU aren't compatible. Different sockets.

Also dont get a coolermaster PSU. Get something from Antec,XFX,Seasonic,Corsair. 750w will be plenty for this rig.

Save money, grab an i5 3570K and an ASrock Extreme4. Get 8gb of ram 1600mhz. You can get a Gigabyte 7950 instead and overclock it to a 7970. Again, grab the HX 750 or HX 650 psu from Corsair (the one I linked). Thank me later haha :p

Don't forget to grab a CPU cooler so you can overclock that beast. Just go grab a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. See you tomorrow.

Even 750W is too much for a single GPU card. A 500W will do fine. 750W and the such are needed for OC'd rigs and those with two video cards. I do agree with the other changes. 8GBs of ram, CPU that matches board, etc.

Here you go. This will do fine. I just threw the case of my choice in there. You don't have to go full tower if you want to save some more cash. The 256GB SSD could also be dropped to 128GB if you want to save another $70. 750W is too much. The PSU I suggested will be great for overclocking the CPU and GPU. Plus I don't know if you need a monitor and OS.

The motherboard I suggested is definitely compatible with the CPU I suggested. You don't need the sabertooth motherboard. It is ridiculously overpriced and you won't ever use it to it's fullest extent.
