hey guys i'm building a pc for the first time and finally came to this build:

CPU: AMD fx 8320
GPU:MSI GeForce GTX 770 Gaming
PSU: corsair CX600M
MoBo: MSI 970A-G46
RAM: crucial ballistix 2x 4GB
HDD: seagate barracuda 1TB
Case: corsair 450D

I really like this case so thats a must for me :p . is all of this stuff compatible? if I upgrade my PSU will SLI be a good option? do you have any suggestions for the build?

Thanks! - Stan

Thinking about overclocking your cpu? Go at least:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Motherboard: Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($89.79 @ Amazon)
Total: $89.79
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

SLI and great overclock? imho you should buy:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Motherboard: Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($115.89 @ Newegg)
Total: $115.89
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

The MSI motherboards with the 970 chipset are suspect . There were failures of previous models and the G46 just has a bigger heatsink rather than better circuitry .
If you want to overclock then I strongly recommend you use the ASUS M5A97 R2.0 . Its much better

I'd go to the Asus mobo as suggested above, would look for a stronger PSU, the Corsair CX line isn't all that good, especially with the AMD CPU and the 770 GPU..will prob want a CPU cooler, might look at the Hyper 212 EVO
