Hi all,

Just need your guys approval on this build and confirm that everything will fit.

CPU: Pentium G630

GPU: MSI HD6870
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-msi-hd-6870-oc-4200m...

Mobo: Gigabyte Z77-D3H

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB

Optical Drive: LG GH24NS90

HDD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003

PSU: OCZ ZS650W
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-ocz-technology-zs-s...

Case: Coolermaster Storm Enforcer
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/coolermaster-storm-enfor...

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004Q0PT3I/ref=s9_bb...

Total: £553.70

All I want to know is:
-Are all these parts compatible? (e.g. size)
-Have I forgotten any parts? Already got monitor/mouse/keyboard/speakers
-Is the CM Storm Enforcer a good choice? I love the styling and I know it got a recommended buy award from TH, but there are so many choices for cases so it's a little daunting. Max. budget for the case is £70

Thanks guys! :)

Oh, and by the way, before you guys question the CPU; I'm planning on getting an i5 at Christmas so I didn't think it necessary to splash out on an i3 :p  and it seemed to do remarkably well in benchmarks.
One more thing- Would this run WoW in 25-man raids comfortably at at least medium graphics?

Thanks :D

Probably, unless the 3570k or something similar offers any particular advantage.

Yeah, that's an unaffordable extra at the moment :/  I'm saving though!
