Compatibility Check

Hello, I'm currently in the process of picking out parts for a new computer I want to build. I was wondering if someone could please check the compatibility of every part with each other and tell me if there are any issues that would occur during the build. Also any suggestions as to the parts themselves are also welcome. Thanks in advance for anyone who helps.

  1. PSU - The 750 is a bit small in case ya ever wanna add a 2nd 470 to the mix in SLI. The TX is Corsair's 2nd tier line, if you're gonna go SLI at some point and thinking of overclocking, you're gonna want the more stable voltages offered by their 1st Tier line HX series which, at 850 watts is $160 after MIR. The XFX Black Edition 850 is only $1110 at the moment and easily the equal of the HX850.

    Case - For a full tower, I'd recommend the Antec DF-85 or HAF-X. The DF-85 w/ CP-850 PSU is $300 at the moment though newegg often has the combo for $250-260. The HAF-X w/ XFX Black Edition 850 is $310. The cases are a significant step up from the Azza and the PSU's are equal to the Corsair HX series.

    Normalli I'd say go for lower CAS on the memory but that $65 price is real attractive. CAS 7's would cost $35 more
  2. I don't think you need a huge case get the HAF 922 (as big as most full towers) with the xfx 850w

    Also HDD get the samsung 1tb
    Same price, more storage, faster

    Other than that looks like a nice build
