Hi,
I've decided to build a PC and after looking around for a while have settled a some parts. However, I have a few questions about some of them and it would also be helpful if some people more knowledgeable than me about this kind of thing look over it and see if there's any way to improve it, drop the price, etc.
The parts I've seen are:

i5 3570k - http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007RUZKK6/?tag=pcp0f-21
Gigabye GA-Z77-D3H Motherboard - http://goo.gl/aoL7U
Vengeance 2x4gb Memory - http://goo.gl/6uxTo
Sapphire AMD HD 7770 GPU - http://goo.gl/4IMw9
XFX ProSeries 450W Core Edition Power Supply - http://goo.gl/T7y5W (Will this be enough?)
Fractal Design Core 3000 - http://goo.gl/fdCv7 ( Is it worth Paying Extra for the Arc Midi?)
160GB Seagate Drive (I have this already)
OCZ Technology OCZ Vertex Plus R2 SATA 2 60GB - http://goo.gl/ahEto (Not sure about which one to get, or whether it is worth paying the extra for a Sata-III Drive, It's only for the OS)

Thanks for any help

60GB isn't ideal for OS when your gaming(120GB minimum) because it get filled fast(only 50GB usable after windows installed)... other than that, your build is good...

Also increase the power supply to minimum 600W so if you upgrade (GPU) in the future you don't need another psu

If its a gaming PC you are spending far to little of the graphics card compared to the CPU if its not you most likely don't need the graphics card at all.
