Looks good. IF you've got any spare cash, I'd put it toward a better quality PSU. The CX600M isn't bad but an 80 Plus Gold PSU would be better. Your system calcs out to a 550W PSU not overclocked. So 600W is probably a good target.

Pretty compatible with each other, but what case are you screwing them into?
The 212 is by no means a huge cooler, but you need to check that the case is wide enough to accommodate it.
I hear rig lists are all the rage, and I <3 the rage! Workstation = Black tower thing; HTPC = Shhhh!; Laptop - AMAZING FOLDING PC!

I'll probably be getting the Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower, it should be large enough.

Pick up a GTX 750ti to get by for the rest of the year on the cheap, then get a GM204 / GM200 Maxwell card in 1H 2015.

770 and 280x are just too old to be worth it at this point.

You might also consider getting the SSD in the ~500GB range. The price/performance curves are looking really attractive there, and it might be large enough for your Steam folder :D
