I am wanting to upgrade my computer which basically consists of replacing all my hardware. I am planning to purchase a new processor, motherboard, ram, ssd, and graphics card. I want to make sure I am getting the best bang for my buck. Most of the items I want to purchase are currently on sale due to Newegg's Black November deals. I am not sure if I should wait until Cyber Monday to purchase these items. I am also wondering if the items I am looking to purchase are compatible with one another. I definitely do not want to purchase something that is unnecessary or something that will not be compatible. My current setup stays pretty cool thanks to my case but would I need to consider an aftermarket cooler for my CPU?

I am currently using an Azza Solano 1000 ATX Full tower as my case and a Corsair Enthusiast 850W power supply.

My new build consists of:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570k - [...] 6819116504

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V - [...] 6813131837

Graphics Card: MSI GTX 670 - [...] 6814127685

SSD: Samsung 840 128gb sata 3 - [...] 6820147192

Ram: G Skill Ripjaws X series 1600 - [...] 6820231536

The CPU and motherboard are currently in a combo deal which saves me $25.

Overall this will cost me about $1050.62.

Any input would be more than appreciated. Thank you all.

I'm going to cut out the ram because I already have this ram

I was just about to tell you that RAM was too much, you could get 16GB for that price.....

I would go with a HD 7970, it's as good as a GTX 670 and in some cases faster. It's cheaper and you get 3 free games with it:

I'm also in the middle of this process, and I need to know 3570k or 3770k? I'm thinking that with the next gen right around the corner that a 3770k might be able to hold its ground a little bit better on an overclock.

I see that your looking at an 840. IF ther eis little to no price difference i would say get your hands on an 840 Pro or try and get a cheaper 830 as the 840 pro and the 830 have superior performance benchmarks, however, if your coming up from spinning disk any implementation to my understanding is going to be far superior.
