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:

PCU = Intel Core i7 2.66 Ghz (Socket LGA1366) ---->

Motherboard = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Intel X58 (Socket 1366) PCI - Express DDR3


Hard Drive = WD Velociraptor 300GB 16MB --->

Video Card = GeForce GTX 470 1280MB DDR5 --->

Power Supply = CoolerMaster 750W ---->

Memory / Ram = Corsair XMS3 6GB (2GB x 3) DDR3 ---->

Case = Coolermaster Storm Sniper --->

Soundcard = Asus Xonar DS High Definition --->

Cooling = Akasa 2U Fan --->[/b][/b][/b]

Plz Help Me! thx ;)

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.

Better for less

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....

Cooling should be fine.
