Is this combination of components possible?

hi, im planing to build for the first time my own computer (so im noob at this) and my question is if this combination of components is possible:

motherboard: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-Motherboard-PCI-Express-CrossFireX-Intelligent/dp/B007KZQEGC/ref=sr_1_14?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1372180175&sr=1-14&keywords=motherboard

comments are really apreciated!

P.D: if this comb. is not possible what do I need to change? and is this CPU and motherboard good for overclocking? (im planing to do overclocking after, I know i need a extra fan for the cpu..)

  1. Yup, you're good. Few things I'd change though; if you're gaming there's little benefit to the i7 over an i5 - spend the money on a better GPU. You're also spending more than you need to on that MB - I'd go for a GA-Z77X-D3H or ASRock Z77 Extreme4.

    so all the things the same but the
    MB: ASRock z77 Extreme4
    CPU: 3d generation i5 3570K
    GPU: GIGABYTE GV-R795WF3-3GD Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

    would be ok? one thing, does the ASRock z77 Extreme4 have a BIOS to change the Voltage Vcore or however you call it for overclocking?
  3. Best answer
    Yes to all your questions - that's a nice build.

    And yeah, you'll want an aftermarket heatsink to OC.

    ok, is the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 compatible?

  5. Yup, though the Hyper 212 Evo is generally considered slightly better: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099
