There are probably tons of builds similar to the one I want to put together. This is the second build I'm planning to do. Enjoy!
Here's the parts:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel

PSU: Rosewill CAPSTONE-650 650W 80 PLUS GOLD
or
Rosewill CAPSTONE-750 750W 80 PLUS GOLD
(not quite sure which one to get) ._.

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

Memory: I have 4 x 4gb of some kind of kingston hyper-x brand DDR3 1600MHz
This is in my current build and I'm planning on putting 2 pieces into the new build :) 

SSD: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 128GB SATA III MLC

GPU: SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7950 3GB
or
MSI N660TI PE 2GD5 GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB
(leaning towards the 7950...because I like free games ^^)

Case: COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced Blue Edition

P.S. I also have a 1TB HDD that I use just for storage.
All comments/suggestions are welcome. Also, I'm not that educated on PSU's so if anyone has some suggestions feel free to comment.

Thanks :)

Looks good, might want to think about the 750 PSU, Rosewill tend to overstate true voltage, would prob go with the 7950 also, think you'll be happy with it

Oh okay thanks! Are there any other PSUs that I should consider?

I like Seasonic, but there are plenty of goods one, I've used Rosewill PSU but just wanted you to know the voltage is generally a little overstated

I was researching a little more and I found this:
COOLER MASTER GX Series 750W

I know it probably provides more than I need but from what I read recently this power supply lasts quite a while. I probably could use this for another build later down the line. Any thoughts?
