Is this a good build?

CPU: i5 3570K
GPU: Sapphire 7950 Vapor x
RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengence 1600mhz
MOBO: Asrock z77 exteme4
HDD: WD Caviar Green 1TB
PSU: Powercool 750W 80+ Dual 12V V2.2 High Efficiency PSU
OS: Windows 7

Microsoft Sidewinder x4, logitech g400, LG IPS234V, and really cheap wireless adapter and dvd, and also what case should i get, either the NZXT Phantom or the Cooler Master HAF X, i dont mind paying a little extra for the Cooler master if its better, i plan on putting a decent cpu cooler on later, probably.

    Do not take caviar Green for boot drive. Take WD Blue or Seagate.
    Or if you plan to buy SSD then green is fine.

    I thinkk that Powercool is not the best choice.
    Corsair or seasinic is better choice.

    If you are now buying this set take Gskill memory 1866MHz they are now cheaper than 1600MHz Corsair.

    And GPU maybe better take 7870 XT cheaper and fast enough. If you overclock the GPU.

    This is better PSU:

    I read somewhere that the z77 only takes 1600 i can can get 2400 for the same price if thats better
  2. You can get HD 7970 Ghz edition. A SSD is a must nowadays for faster boot times and R/W transfer rate look for Samsung 840 or 840 Pro. WD caviar blue or black whether you're going with SSD or not or you can get Seagate Barracuda.

    HAF X is a high end case for maximum airflow. That power supply seems to be unknown to me, get a quality one from Antec, Corsair or Seasonic. I prefer Corsair HX 750W modular.

    You won't gain anything from getting a RAM faster than 2000 MHz, the differences are very nominal. Still 1600 is the popular ones.
