Are my parts compatible with each other and is my psu sufficient if I want to overclock?
Hi, I am building my very first computer, but before I do that, I want to know whether all my parts are compatible and are also very good for my budget of $750. Adding to that, I would like to know whether my psu will be sufficient if I choose to overclock the pc. So, here is my list.
Case- Rosewill Challenger- $50
Video card- Sapphire Radeon hd 7870- $220
Motherboard- Msi LGA1155 Intel H77- $83
Ram-Corsair Vengeance Blue 8gb Ram- $53
Hard Drive- Seagate Barracuda 500 gb- $57
I5 3470k- $200
Corsair Builder Series 600w- $58
Samsung DVD Burner- $18
LG 47" LM 6700 3d Led Tv
Thank you for your assistance.

More aboutparts compatible psu sufficient overclock
Parts look compatible, psu should be plenty, but to overclock, you'll want a Z77 motherboard, an aftermarket cpu cooler, and an i5-3570K (i5-3470 isn't available in K series)
You'd be fine with a 550w power supply and overclocking, but I'd highly, highly recommend getting a 7870 XT. It's only $5 more, and will beat the snot out of a normal 7870.
(But like mentioned, you need a z77 motherboard and a 3570k if you want to overclock your CPU. You'll also need an aftermarket cooler - I suggest the Hyper 212 EVO.)
