  1. anything is compatible.
  2. Best answer
    Pretty much any modern gpu will work with that board (AMD or nvidia). So yes, the 770 will work great. :)

    Okay so what's better for gamimg that set up which I have linked to or this one:

    I5-3570k
    8gb DDR3 1600mhz Ram
    AsRock z77 extreme 4 mother board
    800watts power supply
    GTX 700
    1TB harddrive 7200 rps?
  4. gtx 700?

    what 700w psu? brands are important. (700w is overkill)

    why not a 4th gen intel cpu?
  5. the intel build is better.

    better motherboard
    great CPU
  6. Corsair 500R is a better case and a little cheaper

    White - http://www.scan.co.uk/products/corsair-carbide-series-500r-white-mid-tower-gaming-case-w-o-psu

    Ya 750 watt PSU comes up short if ya add a 2nd GFX card..... Id choose a 650 watter for one card, 850 watter for two ... TX V2 series is fine

    on the MoBo side,. Id recommend the:

    MSI Z87 GD-65 - £160.64

    Asus Z87-A - £113.84

    I recommend the 1st one a lot because of the reviews ..... but others say it's because of the installation instructions video :)

    Skip the Z77 based build..... while no reason to upgrade from them as little to gain, doesn't make sense to invest in end of life products.

    So skipping the AsRock z77 build

    I should go with the 'scan' build but change case to the one you suggested, I'm a total noob at computers so everything else confused me, I'm trying to say around the £600/£800 mark so will be removing the moniter..

    In writing what would you change in that build for good performance around the same price?
