I am looking to build my own gaming pc. I have went ahead and found all the parts i need. All i want to know is whether these parts will work once i put them together and build my gaming pc. Please leave all your suggestions as to things i should change.

1)Is the power supply enough?
2)Will the graphics card work with the motherboard?
3)Since i have chosen to order all of these parts online particularly for Amazon. Say for some reason one of the part are faulty will they replace or refund me once i open it?

Please don't recommend any parts that will increase the prize of the build because it's already pretty high but at the same time i am not trying to do a cheap build.

I will really appreciate the help, this will hopefully help me build my first pc successfully.

Thank you. :)

1.) Yes it is enough...and you even have some breathing room.

2.) Yes, should work fine.

3.) You generally have a standard RMA period, not sure what it is for Amazon, but I would expect it to be between 2 weeks and 30 days.

Build looks good...I would say go ahead with it.

1. Actually more than you need for a single GPU.

2. Yes.

3. The manufacturers have their own warranties and they will replace faulty products.

What is your budget? You could probably make a few cuts (especially case and power supply) without sacrificing the quality of your rig.

Based on plugging in your parts into pcpartpicker, this build actually works out to be similar money, but does a few things differently.

I swapped the HAF X case for the Antec 1100, went with a lesser wattage PSU, but with a better efficiency rating, and got you a HD 7870XT GPU which is a considerable upgrade over the GTX 660 you had picked.

1)Is the power supply enough?

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 660 (non-Ti) graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 450 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and that has at least one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector.

For a system using two GeForce GTX 660 (non-Ti) graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 600 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 36 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the critical factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) may require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.

The Corsair TX Series TX750 (SKU# CP-9020042-UK), with its maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 62 Amps and with four (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is way more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 660 (non-Ti) graphics card. It is also way more than sufficient to power your system configuration with two GeForce GTX 660 (non-Ti) graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode.

I don't know if you have any plans for SLI. If you don't, then you can get a lower priced semi-modular high quality PSU instead.

There's no reason why the graphics card won't work with that motherboard unless either one of them is defective.

If you receive a damaged or defective item, they’ll send you a replacement of the same item.

Where ya been, man? You have no idea how many times that's come up lately, and I've argued this point until I'm like Lewis Black trying to unleash a long string of angry profanity. :lol:
