I decided to finally bite the bullet and build my own gaming PC. I also do some light photo editing.

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.40 GHz 6MB
Cooling: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo Gaming Cooling Fan
Motherboard: CrossFireX MSI Z87-G41 PCMate
Memory: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB
Power Supply: 750 Watts - Corsair CX750 80 Plus Bronze Power Supply
Hard Drive: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black SATA-III6.0Gb/s 7200 RPMHDD
Monitor: ASUS VE278Q 27" LCD Widescreen 1920x1080
OS:Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)

This is all about $1500, what else do I need?
Maybe I need to order cables?? idk
What should I go with as far as monitoring temps once I have set everything up?
I am also unsure about cases

I live in Texas, my budget is sitting around $1600. Should I go with the 660 gpu?
I won't be overclocking or going SLI
