I would switch out the corsair TX psu with an ocz zt series i bought my 650W one for $70 and its fully modular. I would also switch the 560TI for a 660 since they are about the same price

Go with 3570k! same price! unlocked multiplier also hd 4000 vs hd 2500. Big difference!

Agreed with gpu statement. Maybe something like this?

the 3570 you cannot overclock but the 3570k you can and if you have a decent cooler you can probably get a good 4.6-4.7Ghz out of it

As for the mobo, Z77X-D3H has better MOSFETs than the Z77 Extreme4 so its a better choice.

As for the memory, have you heard about the Samsung's? Samsung 2x4Gb Low Voltage DDR3 1600 kit (OCing to 2400+) Discussion

As for the GPU, I would look into the 7870. The Gigabyte Windforce is a brillant cooler, will be very silent and will keep your card cool unlike the reference cooler. The 7870 is also a latest gen. card which has lower power consumption and packs 2GB VRAM out of the box, not to mention it performs significantly faster.

As for the case, the Apevia you listed is horrible. Not in term of looks (through I think it is) but esp. in terms of quality, cable management isn't great either etc.
I had a case like this before and its more of a pain to work with and it will have poor cooling. Apevia isn't a renowned case manufacturer anyways.

I mean, look at this:



vs. this:



I lowered the PSU to a new CX600v2 which remains 80+ bronze certified but cheaper.
Alternatively there's the XFX 550w:

They both have around the same +12V amperage: 44/46A thumb.gif

Awesome! And as far as the motherboard goes the asrock extreme4 z77 motherboard is the best/most reviewed motherboard for the socket. I personally own it and its amazing! I would stay with that choice. And I wouldn't go below 600w either. For something like that you always want more then you need. something like a 650-750w would be perfect.
