Won't work - cpu doesn't work with mobo.

You also need a power supply, a case and an OS.

Sorry, didn't think I needed to list them. Also, what mobo would you recommend? Sorry for being a nuisance.

OS: Windows 7 64 Bit (vague, I know.)
Case: Cooler Master HAF X
Power: Corsair CX Builder Series 750W

Hi, sorry to return here and bother you, but I have come across some conflicting statements regarding the compatibility of this setup. I have mildly revised the specs and you're my new go-to guy/girl for info, so I was hoping you could put my mind at ease.

Same OS.
ASUS GTX 770 (www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00CY5GP0)
Same CPU (www.newegg.com/global/uk/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E...)
Same mobo, link already provided.
Same RAM, specific enough for a link to be unnecessary. (Amazon)
Seagate Barracuda 2TB ST2000DM001, see above. (Newegg)
Same miscellaneous specs (e.g. Case, PSU)
pc-specs.com implies that the CPU is incompatible with either Assassin's Creed Unity or the rest of the parts.

This should be the last development on this thread, thank god.

UPDATE: apparently the CPU is incompatible with the mobo.

Stop saying "same" Just list what you've got eg PSU - now got XFX650?

I have the same stuff as you recommended, such as the XFX 650W.
