-------------------------------------------
Hey guys, thanks for taking the time to read this.
I am building my first PC and am a bit nervous. I just wanted to make sure that the components that I have listed below are compatible with each other.

Please take a minute and read through them:
Bitfenix Merc Alpha
ASRock Z77 Pro 3 Motherboard
Intel i3 3220
Sapphire AMD/ATI HD 7770 OC Edition 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
Transcend DDR3-1333 DDR3 4 GB PC RAM (JM1333KLN-4G) (no link sorry )
Cooler Master Thunder 500W 500 Watts PSU
WD Caviar Blue 500 GB Desktop Internal Hard Drive (WD5000AAKX)

Is anything incompatible? Suggestions for better parts? Is the PSU powerful enough? Am I missing any major component?
Thanks so much for your time and your feedback is greatly appreciated.

looks good and the 500w power supply should support it fine but if you intend to upgrade go with a 750w or an 800w.

I would switch out to a A85 motherboard and AMD A10-5800K. It is a better processor all around. same $
