I think you have inadvertently revealed why so many folk build a PC and it results in a machine that just crashes.
As to the graphics card, I'll supply the list I like but without knowing about the use of the machine I have no reason to pick one.
Nice choice on the SSD. I see less woes with that line.
Here's the list:
I just bought the below and was wondering if I should also invest in a graphics card or not? Can anyone tell me their thoughts on the following.
Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000
ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Also, should I buy Thermal compounds? The CPU came its a CPU cooler but didn't have any thermal paste.
