How do I know if all my parts will work together? When building a PC and will these parts work?

So I have never built a computer before but I am wanting to be able to make one that will be good at the field of gaming but will also be able to live stream/ Record gameplay.

I don't know if these will work together and also would like to know if there is anything I should change out because it would be better or something. My budget is $1000 and I am currenly at $1059 and am willing to go a bit higher but not much.

The Parts for the computer are
CPU - Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
RAM - G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133
GPU - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Windforce OC Video Card
Motherboard - MSI Z170-A PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
HDD - Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB
SSD - Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" SSD
Case - NZXT S340 Mid Tower Computer Case, Matte Black/Blue (CA-S340MB-GB)
PSU - SeaSonic S12II 620W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX PSU

  1. Looks absolutely legit. 100% compatible and a great build. From top to bottom. Only thing i can see is that 2133 is a bit slow for DDR4, you can easily get 3200 with 14 or 15 CAS/CL for a bit more speed.
  2. Best answer
    I would argue that RAM speed isn't very crucial. The performance gains are evident in benchmarks, but near undetectable in real-world use. You might want to go for 2400 over 2133, that seems to be about the sweet spot for cost/speed. But it's not crucial if you really don't want to add costs.

    You might be able to save some money by going with a 550W PSU instead, unless you plan on overclocking. SeaSonic and EVGA G2 550W PSUs would be great choices, and might save you money.

    Otherwise, agreed, great build.

    Go here https://pcpartpicker.com/ and choose your parts. It has a compatibility checker. Should you choose an incompatible part it will tell you.

    You should do some personal research yourself. The site can't say for certain if X cooler will fit in X case. It also can't tell you if X GFX card will fit inside of X case.

    Yes, everything is compatible and will fit nicely in that case.
