First Home Built. Help!

Hi, I want to build my first computer and I would like to have a good trade-off between price and some gaming specs.
So, after many hours of research I came with the following components and I would like to have your opinions about them:

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
GPU: ASUS GeForce GTX 650 DirectCU - 1 GB GDDR5 - PCI-Express 3.0

And dont know which Power Supply and CPU Cooler are better according to the previous components.

Thank you very much,
manelf

  1. What's your budget and what will you be doing with the pc?
  2. 800$. just playing some games watching movies, nothing serious.
  3. What type of games will you be playing on your computer? Can you give some examples please.
  4. Any Call Of Duty for instance. I've figured out that gpu is not so strong. maybe it's better a stronger one
  5. Yeah the GPU is not that good at all. If you spend another £60 ($95) you can get the 660. This is a very good card.
  6. I've just updated my system:

    8GB GSKILL RIPJAW X DDR3 1600MHZ (9-9-9-24) (2x4GB)
    ASUS P8Z77-V LK SOCKET 1155
    SEAGATE BARRACUDA 1TB SATA III
    INTEL CORE I5 3470 3.2GHZ 6MB CACHE 1155
    EVGA GTX660 2GB GDDR5
    Sony DVDRW 7261s 24x SATA LIGHTSCRIBE BULK

    and in a near future I would like to add as SSD.

    what PSU is most appropriated to this system?
