I was wondering if anyone with computer building background and iRacing experience would let me know if the following components would make for a good iRacing machine (and potentially some 3D CAD work - SolidWorks). Also if it would support 3 monitors incase I go that route down the road (not sure what I need to support that).
I'm looking for good performance (consistent 60+ fps, high detail settings, etc.) and hoping to stay under $800 (the cheaper the better!). I tried to do as much research as I could on the subject and then came up with this list for only $700. Also, since this would be my first build, I'm not sure if all these parts would even be compatible with each other. Any help would be grateful!

Before purchasing all this stuff, I want to make sure everything is compatiable and will work together right out of the box. I've never built a computer before and just want to make sure I don't buy stuff that won't work.
^ The PSU requirements, depend on the graphic card you are using and not the game...
That OCZ 700W unlike its other lowered powered versions doesnt perform well...
If you want a higher powered PSU, then check this out -
