    Is this all compatible ?

    So i'm going to be ordering these parts tomorrow for my PC, im just wanting to make sure that they all the components are compatible with one another and maybe some last minute changes, thanks

    CPU - Intel Core i5-2500 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor
    I'm thinking of getting the i5 3570 ? its not too much more, is it worth it ?

    RAM - Corsair Vengeance Red 8GB 2133MHz CL11 DDR3 Memory Two Module Kit

    Motherboard - Asus P8Z77-M PRO Micro ATX LGA1155

    Storage - Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

    Video Card - EVGA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Video Card

    PSU - Corsair Builder 500W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply

    OS - Windows 8 Pro

    Case - not decided yet any suggestions ?

    And finally will i need a cooler for any of these components and anything to organize the wires ?

    first of get the K version of the cpu. ($10 extra in most cases and with good cooler 20% more performance is doable)
    ram: 1600MHz will do just fine , you are overpaying for getting it downclocked.
    mobo : going for a small case? (else just search for a ATX size one instead of micro)
    cooler : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-...r-rr212e20pkr1 (one of the best budget coolers out there)
    case : depends allot on what you want. (also if you want a small case or a mid tower, depends on what kind of motherboard you want)
    corsair/cooler master/ nzxt just to name a few brands.

    edit: if you got a microcenter near they got sale on http://www.microcenter.com/product/3...1155_Processor (which is top notch)

    OK, get the 3570, no cooler needed if you don't overclock.
    Ram: no need for 2133Mhz memory, get something like 1600 Mhz.
