I7 930 build, is everything compatible?

Are all of the parts compatible, and not just compatible, but would you recommend the parts/brands that I am using?
Feel free offer your opinions on what would be better or what I should simply stay away from.
Oh, and even more importantly, am I forgetting something?
This will be my first time building a computer if that means anything.

More about build compatible
  1. It's all compatable.

    You have more mobo than you need, unless your plans include much you didn't share. This mobo, eg, will support 2x460, has latest USB and SATA, and saves $80:


    That psu did not get the best of all reviews, but this respected reviewer says its OK if all you want is a 600W unit and you get it at a good price:

  2. Thanks for the insight, I don't really know what to look for in a MOBO other than compatibility and I wanted to make sure it was futureproof in that it has usb 3 and the latest SATA. What exactly is it that my mobo can do that is out of the ordinary?

    Also, will 600W be enough if i decided to add another gtx460 in 6months or so?
  3. If you want to use two cards, go with at least 650.
  4. I see, and also am I going to definitely want a CPU cooler other than the stock one? I plan on overclocking.
  5. "Your" mobo touts mil spec components, an audio card, and 6 PCIe 2.0 slots. You don't need more than 2 running at x16 for your current and future use. There's nothing wrong with "your" mobo, but for your use - including OCing - the Gigabyte will perform perfectly well. (Were you wanting triple or quad SLI, or competitive OCing, one might choose differently.)

    A good-quality 600W unit will be plenty for your system. Here's a chart showing 2x460s drawing 470W at the wall (ie, total system), which is ~420w delivered by the psu. The cpu is not max-loaded (though it is a 980X lol) so you can add maybe a few watts for that and still be well under 600W.


    Which psu? I simplify my life by using mostly Corsairs, a 650 in this case. But there are many good psus out there (among a lot of lesser ones) . . . let me check Newegg . . . there are a couple of Seasonics, Antecs, and others beginning at $70 that get decent reviews from respected reviewers. But since a Corsair is there at $70 ($60 until tomorrow), I'd go with this:


    Sorry for the bias :)
