Sorry to bother but am new to PC Gaming and decided to build it my self as it didn't look too hard and doing so makes it so much cheaper. After a week of searching I have finally choose my components which are all listed below including where am getting them from (ebuyer) and was just wondering if they would all work fine together for example do i need a bigger power supply, would i need more fans in the case etc, And if i do please say what i need to change. I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you, Reiss

No. Firstly, you need a Z77 motherboard, the one you have there is Z87. The difference is the CPU socket type, the one you have selected is for a 1150 style socket CPU, whereas you want a board labelled to work with 1155 CPU sockets.

Alternatively, keep the motherboard but get an i5 4570k instead of the 3570k.

One thing I'd suggest, is to get 2 4GB RAM sticks instead of 8. Works slightly faster, yo. Or just get another 8GB stick.

Are you buying in sterling or any other currency?

With the ram I prefer dual channel rather than single stick so something like this http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-124-KS&groupid=701&catid=8

Change the psu, I do not like CM (cooler master) go for a corsair/xfx/ocz/seasonic http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-093-CS&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=2466

Add an SSD for the OS , speeds up your rig dramatically http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-167-SA&groupid=701&catid=2104

With the GPU , good call , however unless you really enjoy the aesthetics of the reference cooler I'd recommend the evga ACX edition http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-231-EA&groupid=701&catid=1914&subcat=1341 It will run quieter and cooler than the blow cooler

Instead of the H60 , the H100i will cool your cpu better and the case can fit this at the top http://www.ebuyer.com/410723-corsair-hydro-series-h100i-high-performance-liquid-cpu-cooler-cw-9060009-ww or http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-015-CS

This rig will not work, you must change either the CPU or Motherboard as the cpu is socket 1155 and the mobo is 1150

For the cpu a intel i5 4570K http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-470-IN&groupid=701&catid=6&subcat=567 you should go with haswell unless you are serious about OC'ing


If you can stretch to it , a good board is the asus maximus http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-563-AS&groupid=701&catid=5&subcat=2574
