Solved My new PC components - need everyone advice

Specs: windows 8.1
hi all
im going to buy a computer based on the following component

core i5-4670k
2*Ram 4 GB kingston Hyper-X 1600 MHZ
Hard disk : WD blue 500 GB
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB GDDR5
MotherBoard : Gigabyte H87-HD3
Case : thermaltake with power supply 450w

the reason for not getting a Z87 mobo is that i will not make overclocking cuz the price of i5-4670k+cooling device will be very near to the price of i7-4770 so if I planned to spend much money I will get the i7
and I cant find the non-"K" Version of the i5-4670 in my country

my question is
did these components will form a good computer and are they comptabile with each other ?

thanks in advance

Just my opinion, but that K380 case is all wrong. Bottom mount PSU to start, then a ton of opening and fans.

I believe that case manufacturers pander to the appearance of a case rather than the efficiency of air exchange.

All that is needed with a top mounted PSU is ONE large discharge fan just below the PSU.

I could not find any information on what power supply came with that case either. I did find 2-500W PSUs by Cooler Master. The first link below is not a good choice. The second is OK.

Buying a case with an included power supply usually results in you getting a crappy power supply.

Post the full model of the case and power supply.

"i will not make overclocking cuz the price of i5-4670k+cooling device will be very near to the price of i7-4770"

Doesn't the i5-4670k come with a CPU cooler? There's no reason you can't overclock using it, just don't overclock as much. As for the i7-4770k, it would just be a waste of money.

Core i7-4770K vs i5-4670K Gaming-Performance

I agree with OtheHill about the PSU. The ones that come bundled with a case are usually low end. We need make/model & specs. Also, a 1TB HDD isn't much more than a 500GB. You might wanna reconsider the motherboard too.

core i5-4670k with Z87-HD3 mobo will be less than core i7-4770(non-K Version) with H87-HD3 by just 28,5$

Get the Z87 motherboard, you will be kicking yourself later if you do not.
Mild overclocking does not need aftermarket coolers, can make a significant improvement in performance, and does not increase temps significantly when done intelligently.
Your link does not show the exact power supply. DO NOT DO IT, I have not seen a decent included power supply, they are giving you a power supply that they cannot sell separately and probably an older generation type, but a cheap one is not one to consider. Find a cheaper case if needed, but get a decent power supply and post back the exact make and model number.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
