New Build Part List Compatibility Test!

Hi, I am thinking of doing a new build and just want to know if this part list is compatible.

Are these all good and would you recommend something else in the same price bracket?
Thanks.

More about build part list compatibility test
  1. Everything is compatible. :) But change that cooler to CM Hyper 212 EVO. It's way better and very cheap. Also I recommend 1150 platform since it's newer and not very expensive over the 1155. Asus Z87-A + i5-4670K is a good choice. Also, what is the purpose of this PC?
  2. Gaming and casual youtube video making is the purpose.
  3. Also I might add a Crucial M4 128GB SSD but that would be a later upgrade and not with the initial build.
  4. Do you want to run the games on maximum settings?
  5. If possible, but I understand this build will only do like med-high on Battefield 3, right?
  6. Yeah. If you don't want to overclock that much you can take i5-4670 + ASUS H87-PRO + GTX760 (pick which brand you like the best). Also, what is your monitor resolution?
  7. Can't really afford a 760, was going to get a 660/660 ti and I have two monitors, one is 1680x1050 (main monitor (from a PC I had years ago)) and one is 1920x1080 (bush 19" LED TV).
  8. Then definitely get 660Ti. But if you want to play at good FPS and good settings you should play on only one monitor.
  9. I do play on only 1 monitor, I use the second for web browser or Twitch chat while ingame.
  10. What's your budget?
  11. Around £500-600
    Although I don't mind reusing things like my current Hard Drive and Case and PSU.

    I have a 500w PSU, an InWIn Griffin Case.
  12. Store you want to buy from?
  13. Amazon or OverclockersUK would make me feel the most comfortable.
  14. Here's the link to the cart: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/cart/view.html/ref=gno_cart

    If those £20 are bothering you can pick cheaper case.
  15. "Your shopping basket is empty"
    Just put a parts list in here? :/
  16. Can you use your old case for now, if yes then here is the parts list:

    MSI B85-G43 ATX Motherboard
    Intel Core i5 4570 Quad Core Retail CPU
    G.Skill 8GBXL Main Memory DDR3 8 GB PC1600 CL9 Ram Kit 2x 4 GB (Ripjaws X)
    Gigabyte GV-N66TOC-2GD NVIDIA GTX660Ti 2GB DDR5 PCI-E
    Western Digital 1TB internal Hard Drive - Caviar Blue (3.5 inch) (SATA 3, 6Gb/s, 64MB Cache)
    Seasonic SS-550RM 550W Power Supply

    Subtotal (6 items): £623.47
  17. I can yes, but I don't know if it has sufficient air flow. Search "Inwin Griffin"?
  18. As long as it's not pea*e of s**it it will do the job fine.
  19. Also I have a Ace A-500BR Black Edition 500w PSU, could I use that? or if not just get the Corsair Bulder Series CX 600w as that is an extra 50w and is almost £30 cheaper.
  20. I edited my post. Look above.

    The Seasonic I putted there is Haswell certified. Your case seems fine so you can use it.
  22. and if I were to buy a new case, what would you recommend? I only ask this as if I buy a new case I can sell my current build to help out the budget.
  23. Well it depends on what look do you like. I like clean & simple look, but you can like more aggrresively looking case. It really depends. But as I said above your current case will do fine. Just make sure to add fans.
  24. Okay well thanks for the advice, it all helped a tonne!
