I am looking to play newer games at mid-high setting. I plan to crossfire in the future. I am just wondering if everything I have will work together and I wont have any problems with anything. Will my CPU work with my motherboard and can my motherboard SLI/crossfire? And will I have enough power for everything? I think i got most of it down but i would just like some more eyes, appreciate your guy's help.

This is a list of the components I plan to buy :

Case:
NZXT SWITCH 810 White Full Tower Chassis with USB 3.0

CPU;
Intel Core i5-4430 Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.0 GHz 6 MB Cache LGA 1150

Graphics Card:
EVGA GeForce GTX650Ti Boost SuperClocked 2GB GDDR5 192bit, Dual-Link DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI,DP, SLI Ready Graphics Card

Motherboard:
MSI Computer Corp. Motherboard ATX DDR3 1333 LGA 1150 Motherboards Z87-G45 GAMING

Hard Drive:
Western Digital WD1002FAEX Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Internal Desktop 3.5" Hard Drive

Power Supply:
Corsair CX750 Builder Series ATX 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Power Supply
by Corsair



I just want to make sure i have everything that i need. And everything will work when i go to build.

well what your looking for is the socket type so processors that are haswell are lga1150 which is the latest generation of intel processors if your looking for the previous generation its going to be lga1155 and those would be for ivy bridge and LGA1150 would be SKU 4000 series and LGA 1155 would be 3000 series or the previous generation. so when you search for mother boards you want to look for socket types. Processor listed for sale generally always have their prospective socket type listed typically people will build around A motherboard platform and then choose a processor that is supported by the motherboard socket type.
