Pc parts compatibility

I'm thinking of building my own computer, but I'm not 100 % sure if all my hardware are compatible with each other...

Here is a list (of names and links) of the hardware I'm thinking of:

Video Card = GeForce GTX 470 1280MB DDR5 ---> http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?NOV-GTX470

Power Supply = CoolerMaster 750W ----> http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?CM-GX750W

Memory / Ram = Corsair XMS3 6GB (2GB x 3) DDR3 ----> http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?CSR-6G1600

Case = Coolermaster Storm Sniper ---> http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?CM-SNIPER

  1. Get a i7-930 not 920. It should be the same price.

    Velociraptors aren't worth the money. A Spinpoint F3 1TB offers similar performance for a ton less.

    GPU ATI cards are a better value for gaming atm. A 5850 or 5870 would work for you.

    CM PSU's are not very good outside a few exceptions. Better off with corsair, seasonic or Antec.

    Look for 1.5v DDR3 1600 cas 7 kits. The G Skill Pi kit for example.

    Soundcard isn't needed.

    HSF
    Better for less

  2. THANKS A LOT, MAN! ;)

    I'm not going to buy yet, so I'm open for more suggestions ;)
  3. How about cooling? Do i need more cooling for any of the components?
    I do have a cpu fan, and the case itself have a lot of fans....
  4. Cooling should be fine.
