Hello there. I'm making a computer and I was wondering, will this setup work together and be compatible and work together properly?

Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 - $150.00 -----

Processor: Intel Core i5 2500K - $230.00 -----

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 4GB DDR3 - $25.00 -----

Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560Ti 2GB - $275.00 -----

Sound Card: Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 7.1 - $30.00 -----

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB - $125.00 -----

Power Supply: Corsair TX750 - $125.00 -----

Optical Drive: Asus 12x Blu-Ray Burner - $70.00 -----


Windows 7 Home Premium - $120.00 -----

A 120MM fan that comes with the case.

Sorry that there is prices. I have this in a .TXT file which I put the prices on to keep the list organized.

Best solution

Everything is compatible and will work together well. i'd recommend waiting on a sound card, on board is usually sufficient for most users.

And why win 7 pro? do you need xp mode or language ability? if not, go home 64.

Don't forget a cpu cooler!

Forgot to mention I already had a 120MM fan. My bad.

just a fan? or an actual CPU cooler? the fan you have will mount to the case in some location you choose, the cpu cooler will mount on top of the processor (dont forget the thermal paste!) to keep your processor cool and let you overclock the K series
