Hey guys,
so i have finally built up a little bit of confidence to attempt a computer build on my own and i would like some opinions on whether the pieces will be compatible together and any advice on switching some components (I'd really like the price to stay about where it is or down a bit) but i have a few extra if NEEDED.

A small note on my needs: I am a pc gamer but for a very specific genre, i, on occasion will play a shooter (perhaps farcry or borderlands) but i will regualry play online games such as World of warcraft, starcarft, league of legends, DOTA. I do play enough shhoters thati felt somewhat justified in a better GPU.

That being said i am always looking to improve and could really use the advice so here iswhat i landed on:

CPU:
Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

GPU:

They look compatible to me but whether they're up to your gaming expectations is another matter. It's best to check the User Forums of, say, World of Warcraft to see what others are using.
