Building My First Gaming Rig, Need Your Expertise for Compatibility Issues


I have been lurking around the forum to get an idea of what my rig would be. I then went to one our city's local computer store and here is what they offered for the price of $2,500+. (It's a lot expensive here)

Please check if my specs are all good and compatible with each other.

Processor: Intel Core i7 4770 3.4GHZ 8MB LGA1150
MotherBoard: Gigabyte G1 Sniper B5 LGA 1150
Memory Module: Corsair RipJaws-X 16GB 2133 MHZ (8GB x2 kit) (4pcs=32GB)
HDD: Corsair Neutron 128GB SSD
HDD2: Western Digital 2TB Caviar Green SATA3
Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon HD7970 3GB GDDR3 512BIT OC
Monitor: LG 23" 237L IPS Led Monitor (3 pieces- 3ple monitor setup)
CHASSIS: NZXT Phantom 530 Black
POWERSUPPLY: Corsair Professional Platinum Series, AX860 ATX
CPU COOLER: CoolerMaster V8 GTS Enthusiast CPU Cooler

* I will be setting this up with 3 monitors for more productivity when I'm doing my work. Are the monitors I chose okay for long hours of reading and browsing the web, I mean I'm looking for something that is cool and easy to the sensitive eye.

Please if you have any suggestions to make this better I would like to hear since I'll be spending a a lot for this computer.

I'm from the Philippines by the way and price of components here are so expensive.

Thank you and will be waiting for your replies.

    Everything looks fine, there is no compatability issues to be seen. The motitors are pretty good quality so there shouldn't be any undue eye strain there. That is very expensive, you are correct about that, but it should do anything you want it to do and chew it up.
  2. Thanks Supahos,

    I have one question though, I've been seeing lot's of negative reviews on the corsair ax860 psu (issues on coils whine "annoying sound). Would a 700 watts PSU support my setup just in case i'd change corsair to another brand?
