  1. Compatible... likely ok.
    Good picks.... probably not.
    What will this pc be used for?
    Post a full list of parts and links.
    You can likely do better.
  2. Gaming/Every day use and used as a tv as well. Also A lot of the parts I already have from friends and my brother so since they were free they were the best pick. And my only question is will they all work together and will they all fit in the case?
  3. which parts do you have already ?
  4. cpu, motherboard, ram, case, and the monitor.

    would a XFX Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card work for the GPU?

    What is your total budget? If I were you, I would get a Radeon HD 7970. The 7850 will bottleneck your otherwise very high end build. Here is a 7970 for $280 with a rebate card:
    You could also wait a few weeks until AMD releases their new generation of cards. The prices for the 7970 might drop even more, or you could buy one of the new cards.
