I'm building a computer from scratch and thought I'd ask the community how it looks, and if everything is compatible/best for my build.

Case - Corsair Obsidian Series 650D
Processor - Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge
Motherboard - ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77
Graphics card - EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 760 2GB
Power Supply - XFX PRO750W XXX Edition Semi-Modular 80Plus Silver
Ram - CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 8GB

This is excluding the hard drive, and a few other things.

thanks for any comments.

I recommend going for the new Haswell processors if you are going the Intel route.
I'm not sure what your budget is, but I will post a build. If you have any questions on it, feel free to ask.
