Hi there,
I'm new to PC building, but looking to learn. I make music and music PCs can be expensive. A friend built my last PC, but after 5 years its time to upgrade, update and move forward :) 

I'm looking at another i7 machine, with a SSD for OS and programmes, and 2TB storage drive, with 16GB RAM... So far my shopping list looks like this, I'm hoping I'm putting together a good list of components, that will run well and all be compatible?

. Processor - Intel Core i7-4770K S1150 3.5GHz 8MB Haswell Quad Core Processor

. Motherboard - Asus Z97-PRO WI-FI AC S1150 Intel Z97 DDR3 ATX

. RAM - Corsair 16GB (2 x 8GB) Vengeance Pro Black DDR3 1600MHz CL9

. Case - CoolerMaster CM690 III USB3.0 Windowed Side Panel ATX Case
with Seidon 120V CPU Cooler Bundle

. SSD - Crucial 512GB M550 SATA 6GB/s 2.5" 7mm Solid State Drive

. SATA - Seagate 2TB Desktop SSHD SATA 6GB/s 64MB 3.5" 8GB SSD Cache

. Graphics - Asus GeForce GT 610 810MHz 2GB PCI-Express 2.0 HDMI Low Profile

. Optical Drive - Samsung 24x SH-224DB DVD-RW SATA OEM

I need advice on a PSU to run it all, and I need advice on the SATA being compatible?

I hope I'm on the right track :D

The list given is coming in at £935, so ideally a PSU that brings it all to an even £1000 would be nice, but there's no point in scrimping on the PSU now, but I'd imagine £50 - £75 will be sufficient?

I'm just looking for more technically minded folk to confirm this little lot will all be compatible and run fast, I wasn't sure about the Seagate SSHD with the motherboard etc...

A quality power supply would probably be at least 80 quids.

I'm looking at the Corsair 750W RM750 RM Series Power Supply?
