This is my first build and i want a quick compatibility check
This is what i came up with

CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
graphics card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (is this enough?)
Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Hard Drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Are these all compatible and will 530W be enough to power this system?
i would greatly appreciate a quick response

all parts are compatible but get another psu,

and if you can strech your budget a little, you can get a very high performing gpu.

thank you so much, but will 430 watts be enough? i will be looking to upgrade a bit in the future
the 6770 should run games like LA Noire at at least high at a decent enough fps for me, i will only be gaming moderately with this.

430w is plenty for 6770, even 6870 or 6850

are you sure? i am using the newegg PSU calculator and its saying i need 400-430 watts, and will that PSU use all 430 watts or will the PSU decline in wattage over time? im just trying to be safe because its my first build.
thank you again
