Hi guys i was trying to make my first gaming pc ever. Im new to gaming pc's but im not sure if these components go together. It my own custom build and i know its good bang for buck, i was just wondering, will these components fit and work together?

Processor: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz Socket AM3+ 14MB Cache

Graphics card: eVGA GeForce GTX 660 FTW Signature 2 - Graphics card - GF GTX 660 - 3 GB GDDR5

Case: Fractal Design Core 1000

Power supply: Corsair CX430 430W

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P Socket AM3+

RAM: Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333MHz Memory

If somebody helps, i would be very happy, in getting to start my YouTube career (Which I do for fun)!

if you go for a 660ftw you might as well go for a stock 660ti. it will be faster and be about the same price.

get a better power supply. about 38/40amp. ( also check how many pci-e connectors the video card needs before buying one. )

Thanks for the help, i will take on board your advice and will greatly consider making this in my custom build, but do these components fit and work? (as this was my main question)

Everything should work OK but as said upgrade the PSU. It is not adequate for your build.

You can determine the wattage consumption of your system with this> http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

Overall pretty good system, great CPU which is even better when overclocked
Nice case (I have the Fractal R4 windowed edition Black Pearl)

This PSU will suffice and is futureproof if you ever decide on overclocking your CPU, however that 430w CPU will manage that system.

thanks very much guys, a great help! would the "Corsair CX600 600W" PSU be enough to reliably power my system?

Yes, if you can afford it. That will allow for overclocking, and powering multiple drives or Graphics cards.
