Hi,
I'm looking to build a computer for the first time and, quite frankly, I'm unsure as to whether this is a compatible build! Any advise would be greatly appreciated

Processor: AMD Bulldozer FX-4 Quad Core 4100 Black Edition 3.60Ghz
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaw 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz Dual Channel Kit
Harddrive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 32MB Cache Hard Drive
Case: Sharkoon T9 Value Gaming Case Black with Red LED Fans
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-B123L/RSBP 12x Blu-Ray Combo Drive
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 AMD 970 (Socket AM3+)
Graphics: Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 6770 OC 1024MB GDDR5
Power Supply: 750W Silent ATX2 Modular Power Supply

Thanks for your help :)

What brand of power supply? I get nervous when I don't see a brand. Also, if you could stretch the budget just a bit, the 6850 cards are a much better value right now. Much better performance for just a few more dollars. Look for Sapphire brand if possible.

Everything else looks fine.

i would say it is a bad build cause of cpu it's not too good in performance get 2500 instead and change the mobo to asrock z68 etreme4 if you can.

Thanks, but they are a little out of my price range, I'm trying to keep as close to £600 as possible

I am not familiar with Novatech, but they listed 4 different 750 watt models on their web site. 2 were inexpensive gray colored models which I would avoid, and the other two were an 80 plus certified Black model and an expensive Gold certified model. The Black one will be fine. It is not too much more expensive than the gray models and it is 80 plus certified which is important.
