Default Finalizing list (PC Build)

At this point I am not sure if my parts are compatible and what not. I have a list of parts, and I have an old thread that I am not using, so I am starting fresh. I am reconsidering buying a macbook pro because my parents don't mind me building a PC but would prefer me to get a laptop, which would pretty much only be a mac because I love the OS so much. Here is my final list if I do decide to make a desktop, which is still a huge possibility. I would like to have it a bit cheaper, but it isn't necessary.

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 76.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($19.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LK ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($132.55 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($46.99 @ Newegg)
Hard Drive: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($79.99 @ Newegg)
Hard Drive: A-Data S510 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($104.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card ($409.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Corsair 500R White ATX Mid Tower Case ($119.18 @ Mac Connection)
Power Supply: Corsair 750W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS90 DVD/CD Writer ($17.99 @ Newegg)
Monitor: Asus VE228H 21.5" Monitor ($132.99 @ NCIX US)
Total: $1344.64

Please don't buy over priced junk which is a Mac.

Only thing I would change in your list is the SSD. Adata is known to be super cheap for price and quality.

Newegg.com - OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

As a suggestion.

I really don't like PC laptops, I am on one right now, and I miss my macs battery life and ease. I love the sleek OS of mac, but I would give that up for a desktop, but not a laptop.

Well last time I checked you listed parts for a desktop

Just pullin your leg. Anywho, besides the SSD like I mentioned I think you'll be quite happy with that build.

Decided to change the SSD to a Sandisk, not the one you recommended because it got better reviews, someone correct me if I'm wrong for choosing that. Somehow this is cheaper, but I don't need to buy Microsoft office, and I am either getting Windows 7 for free or 30 bucks, so the total is probably 1283.29.

Okay, looks good, but check ncix to see if the US site does price matching.

This way you'll save on shipping... ncix does shipping by the grtoup not items like newegg does.
