Don't get the 2500k if you're using it on an h77 board, the h77 can't OC CPU's
Just get the 3570, its faster than the 2500k at stock for both.
An z77 itx would up your price quite a bit

Or consider getting an z77 board

For GPU get an 7870XT, its almost the same price but it is noticeably faster than the regular 7870

Get an 64mb cache HDD, they are significantly faster due to more cache and 1tb paltters

Hi Iconicsin!

Everything is compatible.

However, if you want to overclock your cpu, and I'm only saying this because you got a "K" version, you might run into a problem:
you cannot utilize the unlocked multiplier on non-ivy bridge CPUs (e.g. 2500k, 2600k, 2700k).

If you want a Seasonic made PSU, there are cheaper ones, they are branded XFX but made by Seasonic [corsair PSU's are great too though]

2. you would move it arround a lot

Well if you plan to do water cooling, a larger case will do a lot better.

Water cooling is about $200 bucks for a decent start up kit

You should consider an ATX mid tower or full tower for water cooling

If you're not going to OC, the water cooling part is not needed though

If you did want a mini-itx watercooled build, this is a suitable option.
