Exclamation IS this compatible? HELP!

Hey people, I am working on creating the parts list for my very first custom built PC. Once I finally get everything I need to build a running 'gaming' desktop I will order it!

So all I really want to do on this computer is play some MMORPG games, such as World of Warcraft or the FPS ' Crossfire ' on good settings without fps lag. The major thing I hate is fps lag because of low-end parts. My current laptop gets me 10 fps in WoW on the lowest possible settings. ( I would love to get atleast constant 40 fps while in 'good' or 'high' settings of games such as these. )

So I decided I would attempt to build my own desktop! I havnt really got the knowledge of EVERYTHING I will need to be able to put it all in the case one night and then have it turn on and be ready to set the OS up.

That is my main goal here, so I am wondering if all these parts will match up, plug in correctly and work well with each other, in order for the desktop to be born! PLEASE leave any suggestions of faster/better and/or cheaper parts than what I have chosen.

My original budget is ~$1000 without an operating system. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

CPU Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core $209.99
CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing $24.99
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H ATX LGA1155 $124.99
Memory Mushkin Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 $63.99
Storage OCZ Vector Series 128GB 2.5" SSD $129.99
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM $64.98
Video Card Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB $289.99
Case NZXT Phantom (Black/Green) ATX Full Tower $89.99
Power Supply SeaSonic 620W ATX12V / EPS12V $65.98
Optical Drive Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer $14.99
Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Full (32/64-bit) $169.99

Total: $1249.87
