My first pc build, any advice on these parts?

There goes the parts I'm planning to order this week. Any of these parts have conflicts with others? Mobo, gpu,pcu, etc. I was thinking of going with either a 7870 or a GTX 660 as they both are about the same price but they seem to offer similar performance.

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Rosewill CHALLENGER ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.

i would get a r9 270x or a 760 instead of the 660. i'd also go windows 8.1 if you are building new. Once you hide metro screen and install classic start menu its basically the same thing as windows 7 if that is what is keeping you from windows 8

it says your case has no USB 3.0 front connector if that means anything to you.
