I am a newbie at building PC's and this will be my 1st official build and I was just wondering if this build would work.

Corsair Gaming Series 2013 Edition, 700 Watt, 80+ Bronze, ATX

WD 1TB 3.5" SATA-III Caviar Green Internal Hard Drive - 7200RPM 64MB Cache

Liteon Ihas124 24x Dvd±rw (dual ±r)/ram Sata Drive (internal Black)

XFX HD 7870 2GB DDR5 Dual DVI HDMI Dual Mini DisplayPort PCI-E Graphics Card

Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Vengeance Memory Kit CL9 1.5V

Intel 3rd Generation Core i7-3770K CPU (4 x 3.50GHz, Ivy Bridge, Socket 1155, 8Mb L3 Cache, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0

Corsair Carbide Series 300R CC-9011017-WW Windowed Gaming Case - Black

Asus P8Z77-V LX Motherboard (Socket 1155, 32GB DDR3 Support, ATX, Intel Z77 Express, USB 3.0, CrossFireX Support, Dual Intelligent Processors 3)

although I don't know if the PSU is good enough as I plan to put more ram up to 16gb and a SSD drive.

Your build seems good but there's a few things you should change.

Instead of a 3770k, take a 3570k and pick up a 7950 instead. Also for the psu, i guess the one you've picked is a little too costy (since it's GS) but your build isn't a 2000$ build so you will be better with a TX750.

Get the 3570k
Grab a 7870XT instead of the 7870/7870ghz, way better price/perf

Get an 7200rpm drive instead of the green 5400rpm drive

For motherboard get this instead, the LK

I would grab one of these for PSU
