More about will work
  1. its all compatible but i would go higher with the power supply.
    you can save $5 gettting the processor at newegg

    use promo code HARDOCP1214A to take $10 off price on link.
  2. Your links dont seem to work for me.

    However from the list i can see, everything looks compatible.

    A few suggestions:
    RAM: Stick to 8GB (2x4GB sticks), 1600MHz, CL9, 1.5v - Corsair or G.Skill recommended.
    PSU: Go for a more reputable brand - Corsair, XFX, SeaSonic, Antec recommended. 450w would be enough, certainly no more than 500w required.
    HDD: Not sure what speed the HDD is since link wont open, but generally look for 7200rpm drives (I have a feeling the one you have linked is 5400rpm?)

    Other than that, looks good :)

    Fixed now...
  4. A pair of RAM sticks from this list might be better. 1600MHz rather than 1333MHz and only $4-5 more. Corsair Vengeance or G.Skill RIPJAWS are popular choices:

    The rest looks good though :)
