i5 4670K is the mid range of Haswell, Intel's latest platform. It is socket LGA1150, which means that LGA775 cooler won't fit. The CPU itself does come with a stock heatsink though.

600W is plenty for a single GPU system.

Ah ok thank you, was wondering what it meant

Also, what is your total budget and intended use of the machine? If gaming, I would suggest spending a bit more on the GPU than CPU.

Hey there, Welcome to Overlcock.net
First off, what type of computer are you building? gaming? video editing? please specify. To start off, I'd suggest a better power supply. 600w will be completely overkill for that system. That one you have chosen looks like a piece of **** that would explode and take all your parts with it if it was stressed anywhere near it's specified wattage. Here is a list of quality power supplies: http://www.overclock.net/t/183810/faq-recommended-power-supplies/0_50 , I'd suggest something in the 500-550w range. This will allow plenty of headroom. I'd also recommend buying off PC Case Gear; awesome, reliable, highly recommend Australian computer store. I would also choose a better cooler. If you want an air cooler, something like a Noctua D-14 would do really nicely if you have the money. If you want something cheap, a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO. Other than that it looks pretty good.

Don't get the case from PCCG though, it will add roughly $60 to your shipping. Acquire locally if you can.


EDIT: Do you plan on overclocking? Overclocking is pushing your components to gain more performance than you paid for. If so, I support Dctr's choice in components. From your original build, I doubt you wanted to overclock. Please read some guides and explanations on overclocking before you decide. Otherwise there would be no point in paying that much for CPU+Motherboard at the price of skimping on the GPU
