Hi guys!

I'm planning to build a decent computer without a massive price tag, so naturally I'm going AMD.
I just need advice on whether the components are compatible and if there's anything I can get which is better for less/slightly more.

I am planning the buy the following:

Motherboard: ASRock M3A770DE AMD 770 (Socket AM3) DDR3

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 955 Black Edition "125W Edition" 3.20GHz (Socket AM3)


RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit


PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 500w Silent SLI Certified Modular Power Supply


GFX: HIS ATI Radeon HD 6770 IceQ X Turbo 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card


Case:LEPA LPC 303 Midi Tower Case - Black


As you can tell I really don't have the money to be splashing out on a £600+ computer (Poor student), but I still want to be able to play DX11 games in high settings with no problems.
I just need confirmation that this setup will work okay and any advice that will make it better (Within reason in terms of price)

I'm very computer knowledgeable so you don't need to dumb down any terms and no biased opinions please, I want straight-up facts :) 

Thanks in advance.
