Does this work as a gaming PC?

I've checked out some parts recently that I'm going to build a computer with. By the looks of it they do work together, but I just wanna make sure.

Mobo:
ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z

CPU:
AMD FX-8350

Graphics Card:
Gainward GeForce GTX 770 Phantom

PSU:
XFX ProSeries Core Edition 750W PSU

Case:
Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl

RAM:
Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 1600MHz 16GB

Now, do these work together? (Additional: Will it work well as a gaming PC?)
I'm 100% sure both my SSD and HDD, aswell as my optical drive fit.

    Yeah this will be fine, you will run all games nicely. You could get an aftermarket cooler and overclock your CPU to have better performance at games which utilize up to 4 cores.
  3. Yes they will work together:D
    They are some quality components and will run games very well. I would recommend an aftermarket CPU cooler for the AMD FX8350 though.
    Better still buy an AMD FX8320 and overclock it to 4Ghz like i have and save yourself some money.
  4. Everything should fit fine, and it'll game well. You won't be able to max every game out, but you'll be fine for about 95% of games.

    I have a similar rig and the only thing I haven't been able to max out is Arma 3. I don't have Crysis 3 though so haven't been able to try that yet.
  5. Thanks for all the quick and informative answers! I really appreciate it!
