first of all, new to the forums! Been lurking around for a while, and I'm in a need of assistance.

I only want to ask about these components; will they work/fit together? If they do, that's the setup I will be buying with my budget. A budget gaming PC, that is.

Case + PSU -
MoBo -

Total cost: ~750 €uros.

EDIT, fail at linking, new components.

So far, all of the components you've selected will make a very good gaming PC. However, don't be fooled by the hype... If you're one who measures performance by FPS, don't be alarmed when you find out that w/o a very good monitor, you won't average higher than 40-50 FPS.

The card you've selected is very nice, in fact, a 460 is not a modest card at all. The limitations you will be bound by is your monitor's Native Resolution. This means that if the NR of your monitor is merely 800x600, the 460 is a waste of money. Using resolutions that are higher than the monitor's NR will cause serious display lag. This will cause a severe drop in your FPS.

On the other hand, if your monitor is capable of 1920 x 1200, the 460 is a briliant choice. You'll be able to max the video settings in every game and still see high quality display.

About your RAM choice... While Kingston is a reputable brand, the Value RAM isn't very impressive; its meant for builds with tight budgets. Consider this:

its more expensive, but better for performance and over clocking
