I wanted to get some feedback if the hardware I selected would be compatible and if it would run games like crysis 3, not maximum specs(soon to be coming out) and plan on using Windows 7. Also If you could let me know if you know any better deals for what I've chosen or similar, I would appreciate that too. Here is what I've picked out, almost all of the hardware is from geeks.com with the exception of the processor(newegg.com), haven't searched each individually yet. If there is any other information you need to know please ask.

Case: 10-Bay ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - No PSU (Black/Red)--- Part # 580C--- $15.99---
Power Supply: Cool Power Gamer Series CP-G880 880W 20+4-pin Blue LED Fan ATX Power Supply w/SATA, PCIe & Dual 12V Rails (Black)--- Part # CP-G880--- $32.99---
DVD Drive: ASUS DRW-24B3ST 24x DVD±RW DL SATA Drive (Black)--- Part # NU-556-017-0012--- $23.99---
Hard Drive: Toshiba DT01ACA100 1 Terabyte (1TB) SATA/600 7200RPM 32MB Hard Drive--- Part # DT01ACA100--- $69.99---
Graphics Card: ASUS AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB DDR5 PCI Express (PCIe) DVI Video Card w/HDMI & Dual Mini-Display Port--- Part # HD7870-DC2-2GD5-PB-R--- $214.99---
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V Intel Z77 SLI/CrossFireX Socket 1155 ATX Motherboard w/DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI, Audio, GbLAN, RAID & WiFi-- Part # NU-555-017-0018--- $188.99---
Processor: Intel Core i5-2380P Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 Quad-Core Desktop Processor--- Part # BX80623i52380P--- $194.99---
Ram: Patriot Viper 3 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 RAM 1600MHz PC3-12800 240-Pin DIMM--- Part # PV38G160C9K--- $39.99 (maybe 2 of this pair)---

Thanks in advance for any help.

The Motherboard has PCI Slots on it which are out-dated unless you specifically need one for compatibility.

The CPU does NOT support Motherboard Graphics which you need even though you have extra Video Card.

Suggest you try again picking out components. :) :)

ADDED:

May be shop at another Vendor because I cannot find parts that you need on that website.

Try this solution.

I used that website you posted (pcpartpicker.com) and put everything but my power supply and case(because I couldn't find them), it said that there were no compatibility issues, I also went to http://usa.asus.com/Motherboar.....Z77V/#CPUS and checked the cpu support list for the motherboard I listed above and found that the processor above was on it and compatible. Are you sure this wouldn't work? Also I plan on disabling the built in graphics that are on the motherboard if that matters.

OH, your combination of components will work together OK.

They are not just optimal combination I would pick for an up-to-date Build.

You have an older Sandy Bridge CPU mated with a Ivy Bridge Motherboard.

Not sure you if you had researched good knowledge of building.

This is Model Of CPU you need.

Okay, I did check out a similar ivy bridge processor, do you think this one would be good? http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6819116782
