I'm taking on the challenge of building my first PC and was just wanting to make sure that the following components will all be 'compatible' and work fine together:

Case: CoolerMaster HAF X Case

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Z F3-19200CL11Q-16GBZHD 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3

MotherBoard: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard

Graphics Card: ASUS Radeon HD7970 DirectCU II 3GB

CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K

Power Supply: Corsair HX-1050 80 PLUS Silver Power Supply

Thanx for the help in advance

    Nope, the board is made for intel processors, not amd.

    How about this?
    i7-3770k
    Asus p8z77-v pro

    Ok, changed the Motherboard (silly mistake) and changed the processor to Intel Core i7 3770K. How are things looking now? :)

  4. Thats way over kill on the psu, a 7970 only requires a 550 watt psu. Something in the 650-750 range would be plenty
  5. What if he wants to Crossfire? That will run four 7970's and is future-proof!
  6. Any suggestions for a 650-750w power supply?
  7. Corsair HX750W.
  8. Ok so now my build stands at:


    - ASUS Radeon HD7970 DirectCU II 3GB

    - G.Skill Ripjaws Z F3-19200CL11Q-16GBZHD 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3

    - CoolerMaster HAF X Case

    - ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard

    - Intel Core i7 3770K

    - Corsair HX-750 Power Supply

    Should this be setting me back $2100, or am I getting ripped off? :lol:
  9. You can't use the Rampage Extreme because that is a different chipset/socket! The only processors that are supported are the i7-3820 and 3930k! However, the 3770k outperforms the 3820 and the 3930k will set you back further!
  10. So them what mobo should I go with -_- That would fit the 3770k?
  11. I am asumming you want high end?
    That would either be the ASUS P8z77-V PRO, or the Asrock Fatal1ty Professional, or Gigabyte Z77-UD5h
  12. I chose the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO. NOW will it all be compatible? :D
  13. Yep! But do you have an hard drive, copy of windows, and cpu cooler?
  14. Already have Hard Drive and a copy of windows.

    CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
  15. Ok, cool you have everything!
  16. Thanx for your help! :D
