Will my build work?

Hello tomshardware community, I’m putting together a gaming PC for the first time & am looking for some of your comments on what I’ve chosen. Budget is around $1500.

CPU: Intel CORE i5 2500K

Motherboard: MSI P67A-GD55B3

Memory: Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Unbuffered DIMM

Graphics Card: MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk

PSU: Antec TruePower New TP-750 Blue 750W

CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 212+

Storage: Western Digital WD1002FAEX 1TB 3.5" CAVIAR BLACK 7200RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s

Case: Antec Dark Fleet DF-85

DVD Drive

Are all the components (especially the RAM & motherboard) compatible with each other?
For the case, I’m still deciding between the Antec Dark Fleet DF85 & the Silverstone Raven RV02. RV02 is definitely sleeker & sexier but the DF85 has better airflow.

Any comments would be greatly welcomed & appreciated!

More about will build work
  1. it works
  2. the antec dark fleet is way better
  3. They are all compatible with each other.

    Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200rpm is a faster, more reliable and quiter HDD IMO. Costs about $60. Otherwise the specs look promising.
  4. ^+1 on the above the F3 is on sale right now for $49.99, but yeah go with it.

    Check out the special antec CP PSU's since you are going with a DF-85.
    Like Antec CP-850, the quality of the PSU is really high, but you need specific cases to fit it, and DF-85 is one of them.
