Hello, was wondering if this build will be appropriate/sutiable for my budget of $1200 to $1300. My goal is a complete package build. CPU with accessories. This is also my first PC build and I have no plans of overclocking the system.

My goal is gaming and some work along the side. Web, editing, and etc.

I do have a few questions regarding the build.

1)Are the parts compatible to one another?

2)What would I expect at 1080p in terms of settings?

3) Is the PSU and type of PSU suitable for the build?

Below is the build I put together from Newegg. Any thoughts/suggestions are welcomed.

Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card(249.99)
Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply(89.99, 69.99 sale)

Ok, thank you. Will look into a non z motherboard.

Edit: Are there any good non z motherboards for equal or lesser price from my build?

I did find this, however not sure how it will perform - ASRock B75M R2.0

or the ASRock H77M
