Hi, I want to build my first computer and I would like to have a good trade-off between price and some gaming specs.
So, after many hours of research I came with the following components and I would like to have your opinions about them:

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
GPU: ASUS GeForce GTX 650 DirectCU - 1 GB GDDR5 - PCI-Express 3.0

And dont know which Power Supply and CPU Cooler are better according to the previous components.

Thank you very much,
manelf

manelf,

You have Sandy Bridge CPU paired with new Ivy Bridge Motherboard.

Not good.

May be you should wait to Build.

Intel Core i5, i7 Haswell Processors to be Released June 2, 2013

Will require a new MB as is (LGA 1150 socket).

Really too late for beginning a LGA 1155 socket Build now unless one just has to.
