Are these parts good for a gaming PC?

Here are the parts:

Intel i5-3570K
Asus Z87-Plus Motherboard
HIS Radeon R9 280X
Corsair Vengeance 8GB
Corsair Builder Series CXM 750W Modular
Western Digital 1TB internal Hard Drive
Aerocool X-Warrior Screwless Gaming Mid Tower Case

I also need a good cooling fan.
Will these components work with each other?

  1. Best answer
    you're buying a 3570k and trying to put it in a z87 board you need to either change the 3570k to a 4570k or change the z87 to a z77 board
    3570k/z77 = lga 1155
    4570k/z87 = lga 1150
    they're different sockets
  2. A good cooler is the Coolermaster Hyper 212. Doesn't matter which version of it.
  3. Thanks. Is the case good?
  4. yea it looks like a pretty good case
  5. If you want the 3570K (socket 1155) look at the ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 mobo (best out there and only about $120)

    If you want the Z87-Plus mobo (great mobo by the way) then get the 4670K CPU

    also need a CPU cooler, with either of the rigs go with the Hyper 212 EVO
