New build tips and help

Ok, so I have planned to build a computer for some time but am a complete Newbie. I have picked most o the components found competitive prices and made sure there are a few in Stock.
The parts are as follows:
CPU - IntelCore i7-3770k £269.99
Motherboard - Asus P8Z77-V LE £117.33
Graphics Card - Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 £299.60
RAM - G.Skill Ares series 16GB 1600MHz £82.48
HD - Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200 RPM £100.19
SSD - Crucial Real SSD 64GB £62.99
PSU - Antec Earth Watts 750W £86.14
DVD Drive - Samsung Slin 4x BluRay Rom £35

Now I am aware I have no case the one I wanted isn't available, so are there any aesthetically nice cases that are a must any help appreciated Greatly.

This comes to £1081.71 so far, and I have some room to upgrade roughly a maximum of an extra £300 so what would you guys swap and upgrade.

All thoughts welcome, help a newb.

  1. Unless you're planning on going SLI later, i would change the 750w to a 500w psu.

    Also, if you don't have an OS, you might want to add that to your budget.
  2. the way i have my gaming rig set up is a 120g ssd boot drive and a few games on the ssd.
  3. Cases are really the buyers choice..I really like Antec cases but you can check out all the cases here..

    But, I would get at least a 120 gig ssd, like a samsung 4 pro or Crucial. 64 gig fills up fast and will drive you crazy..I does me anyway on one of my builds.
  4. Hi Guys, thanks for the responses. I do have an OS planned I prefer windows 7 to te new one so will run that an have that already paid for so the budget stays as is. Upgrading the SSD then and I will keep the 750w as it allows for growth room an I will eventually try an overclock so will need it.
