my specs are as follows

CPU - i5 Core 2500k
GPU - Geforce GTX 580 Superclocked
PSU - Thermaltake Black Widow 850W
MOBO - MSI P67A-GD55 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX UEFI BIOS
RAM - G. Skill Ripjaw 8GB
CPU Cooler - Thermaltake Frio
Case - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower

Basically i just want to know if these components are all compatible, efficient, and worth the money...
will the case fit everything and will it be an easy install? also planning on getting an identical GPU in the future...
all together with an HDD and an Optical Drive im spending $1300? how does this build sound

as far as checking if everything is compatible...

check things such as cpu socket, ram type, number of ram sticks required (is this triple or double channel), mobo ports, psu power connections required, etcetera.

i posted a longer list of things to look for in a post i did last week. try forum searching for it. dont need a cpu saved. upgrade to an i7 with the extra cash.
