Ok So i am still new to the pc building. The pc I am on i built myself but i still didnt know what i was doing. I just got a list of parts and bought them online and put them together. lol. Anyways but now im trying to make my own list of parts and hoping they will all work together. This is just a test thing, dont actually have money to buy a new pc right now haha But here are my parts so far. Only worrying about main stuff not stuff like monitor hard drive or cd drives. I think i've got it pretty good so far. I'm also guessing if your getting a cpu that has hyper-threading support you want a motherboard that supports that too right? Now i need to find a power supply haha. But any help on this would be great.

Would just like to know if those all would work with eachother. to see if i got the basics down

Whats your planned theoretical usage?

For gaming the i5 750/760 is just as good for $130 less, Unlocked Multi on 1156 is mostly gimmickry.
Also, all P55 boards support Hyperthreading, besides, it doesn't help out much in most cases.
Finally, the cooler isn't best either.

However, parts selection and value aside, it would work fine with a quality 600W+ PSU, like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

No theoritical usage. Just wanted to at least make sure the parts would and can actually work and interact with eachother.
