This will be my first time building a PC and I would like to know if these parts are compatible.

i5 4670k
2x 4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 Mhz
Corsair Enthusiast TX 650W Semi Modular PSU
120 GB SSD
Cooler Master 212 EVO
Cooler Master HAF 912 Combat


1) Is the case good ? or should I get something better? Budget for case is $150 - $200

2) Currently the only z87 motherboards that I can buy in my country are:
ASRock Z87M Pro4 Motherboard
ASRock Z87 Extreme3 Motherboard
ASRock Z87E-ITX Motherboard
ASRock Z87 Extreme4 Motherboard

Is any one of these worth buying?

I can order MSI, Gigabyte and ASUS mobos from eBay but they are a bit expensive because of the shipping taxes and all

I plan to OC after a while but just a bit as I haven't done it before.

3)Should I get the corsair TX, HX, CX or AX ? I'm not sure how they differ

Thanks in advance for any help

1) Yeah case is good enough. Its a decent mid tower case. Just that you might face problems with front USB 3.0 of motherboard.

I would recommend getting Fractal Design Core 3000 USB 3.0 Black. Costs around $50.

2) ASRock Z87 Extreme4 Motherboard is one of the well known ones out there. Very successful, very durable, very reliable. Plenty of features to play from since it supports everything a gaming motherboard should. Buy that one. Costs around $150.

3) Get Corsair CX600W Builder PSU Bronze Certified. Costs around $80.

Everything is compatible. No worries. :)

Just different categories. I am myself not aware of actual difference but know that CX is probably better.
