I have never built a PC before ,so I want to ask if these pieces of hardware that I have chosen are going to be compatible with each others or not, and if there are any changes or improvements to be done in the list (without affecting the budget) ,before I buy the components ,here is the list : CPU : intel i7 3770, Ram : kingston 8gb ram ddr3 1600 MHz, GPU : sapphire vapour-x r9 280x 3gb, PSU : Corsair VS650 650 Watt (or Thermaltake smart SE 70w 80+ bronze ??), motherboard : ASRock fatal1ty H87, HDD : Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64 mb cache, Case : antec 600.
btw, I want to build this system for MAYA 2014 and for gaming.

The CPU and motherboard are not compatible. But it's easily solved by getting a Core i7-4770 instead of the 3770.

The Corsair VS650 is sufficient, but you might want to consider higher quality; you can afford to step down to a wattage of 550-600W if you do so. The Thermaltake power supply is even lower quality, so avoid that one.

For the PSU ,would seasonic eco 600w be better than the Corsair VS650 ?
for the motherboard I can change the motherboard itself instead of changing the processor ,I have 3 other options in mind : 1-Gigabyte GA-P75-D3 ,2-MSI B75A-G43, 3-ASUS P8H77-M LE ,if any of those is equivalent to the ASRock ,then I will ditch it and buy the equivalent one, otherwise I'll have to buy the i7 4770, so what would you advise me to do ?!
Thanks.

Wasn't familiar with that model, but it seems to be a modified S12II, which is a solid (if slightly old-fashioned) design. Mix of excellent (Nippon Chemicon) and decent (Teapo) capacitors. That should be a step above the Corsair VS650 in quality.

Those 3 motherboards would be compatible with the 3770, but I wouldn't say they're quite equivalent to the ASRock fatal1ty H87. They have more modest features, like fewer SATA3 ports and so on. I'd go for the 4770 and the Asrock board, as long as it doesn't cost a LOT more.

Thanks ,I think I will go with ASRock + i7-4770 :)

The XFX 7950 got poor reviews due to a noisy/inefficient cooler. So I would say no, even though it would give some extra performance.

Oh and would this be a better choice than the 270x for another like..£30?

Well actually if you looked back , you'd find out that I wrote 280x and not 270x , so I guess there are no problems here since the 280x is already better than both 7950 and 270x :D
