Hi, this is my first time building a rig and am on a budget, I was just wandering, will these components work together?

CPU: Intel core i5-4570 vPro processor

Motherboard: ASUS B85M-G LGA 1150

PSU: Corsair GS600

GPU: ASUS GTX 650TI 1GB

HDD: WD mainstream 3.5" 2TB

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB)

Akasa AK-955 Intel P4 775 Cooler

Coolermaster elite 430 mid tower case

As I mentioned before, this is my first build so any help given would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you

Yes they are all going to work together (always check the psu outputs to make sure you have everything you need)

Also may I ask if this will be a gaming rig and why you have chosen that gpu?

Well I actually chose the PSU out of convinience due to my local computer store stocking it, should I purchase a larger PSU then?

Ah, apologies, I read that quickly and for some reason thought you said PSU, but again, I chose the GPU because of the convinience of it being in a local store

I realise my replies have been very unhelpful, but yes, I am hoping to use this for gaming

That cooler is for socket 775 and will not work.

the cooler won't work but since that processor cannot overclock you don't need a custom cooler anyway.

Also what MHZ is the RAM? That motherboard supports upto 1600mhz(that is a fine gaming RAM speed)

I'd say if your gaming you'd benefit greatly at looking at 2gb GPU's

Also if your worried about PSU size use thermaltake psu calculator website to make sure

Don't be overly concerned with ram speed 1333mhz vs 2400mhz in gaming is 2-3fps difference

And for the cooler there are literally millions of adaptors or just find a new one, most are universal now anyways

The GHz of the RAM is indeed 1600
Okay so maybe the boost version of the 650TI? I believe that is a 2GB
So as I am not overclocking, as long as I have a cpu cooler it doesn't matter what brand or anything?

As long as your case as good air flow you'll be fine with any CPU cooler beside Intel's stock coolers

And yeah that would be a good choice, as current games will still hit the roof at 2gb vram but that should let you play most games on high or medium on a 1080p screen and I believe only more recent games will drop below the 25-30fps area where they become unplayable such as crysis 3

the stock cooler will be fine (you don't need to buy a custom one)

in terms of graphics card have you looked at an AMD 7850 or 7870(if you can afford this model) worth a look at as well
