They're compatible yes - but I would not recommend that build.

I'd recommend scaling the case, CPU, and RAM back a bit - you'll save $250 that way - put that money into upgrading your GPU - the 6770 is not the best choice right now - you want a 7850 or 570TI or better.

For the case scale that back to an HAF 932, for the CPU an i5-2500K and RAM to 8GB - that will save a lot of money.

The GPU is the second most important part of any build - bar none after the PSU - and that is one area where you really don't want to skimp or compromise if you can help it - I recommend checking out the 7870: http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1...

You also do not want to use a that HD as your primary HD - that will be a huge bottleneck. It's fine for a secondary storage drive if you get an SSD - but not for a primary.

And don't get that RAM - the tall heat sinks will not be good for installing aftermarket coolers - get this as your RAM instead:

Yes, those parts *would* work when assembled, but it seems like a poor appropriation of funds for any type of usage.

What do you plan to do with the computer (most to least) and what's your budget?

It may be useful if you told us your intended use for the system, that way we can decide if its the best way to spend your hard-earned,
and check out this sticky, its very useful for first-time builders like yourself with a range of tips :)

Initial impressions show the graphics card to be weak,
the processor possibly over-powered/unsuitable (depending on your usage)
and possibly too much ram,
but if you tell us what you will use it for, we'll be better able to judge those points :)

I get the RAM problem but can you explain whats wrong with the HD

And I will use the computer for web-browsing, DVD burning/playing/creating/editing, and mild gaming And money isnt that big of a problem for me
