Will these parts work together?

I am currently building my own computer for my university course and gaming that I do. My course requires some serious rendering software.
Will these parts work together:

  1. I would recommend you look into the motherboard, and see if it supports HDDs that are that large. I know some motherboards won't support any HDD over 2TB. You are also missing the case, and DVD/Blu-ray drive, which you need, unless you have you're using your old one
  2. Now is not the time to be buying HDs, especially 3TB ones. You're talking over $450 for a single drive alone. :ouch: :ouch:

    I'd cut the HD down to a 1TB and invest that money elsewhere - particularly case, PSU, and optical drive or monitor.
  3. Yeah im not entirely sure I want a HDD that big anyway, but here is the case I just bought and the Blu ray drive im just about to place an order for

    or maybe the HD Radeon 6970?
  5. Is that instead of the graphics card I have in there already?
  6. Yes, that is to replace the one you should buy. The one you had was the 6950, the one I chose is the 6970.

  7. thanks might reconsider the hard drive and use the saving to get the better graphics then
  8. What about this for a hard drive?

    Good choices - love the Phantom and the LG Blu Ray burner that I just bought seems to work pretty well for the most part.
