    Here are the components I want to use in my first build. My Main concerns are whether or not all of this will fit in my case, whether or not all parts are compatible, and if there are any improvements I can make:

    CPU: Intel i7-3770S 3.1 GHz
    Mother Board: Asus Sabertooth Z77 LGA 1155
    GPU: Asus Radeon 7870 2 GB
    PSU: Corsair Professional Series AX850
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200
    SSD: Samsung 830 Series 128 GB (For my OS)
    Memory: G.SKILL Ares Series (2x8GB) DDR3 1600
    Heatsink: ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
    Case: Corsair Vengeance (military Green) -or- Corsair Obsidian 650D
    ASUS DVD Burner

    Thanks for any and all input, and I am purchasing everything on Newegg.

    Yes, it should all be compatible.

    Not had any experience with that brand of CPU cooler, would usually just recommend CoolerMaster Hyper 212+.

    Either case would be fine - ATX form motherboards are standard.
