Ok so,I am making my computer and I would like to know whether all my parts are compatible,I think they are because I have done some research on it, but this is my first build so i may have made a few mistakes.

Processor ---------------Intel i3-2120 Sandybridge Core i3 Quad-Core Processor 3.30GHz----£89.99
Graphics card-----------EVGA Nvidia GTX550Ti 1GB 192-Bit 3D-------------------------------------- £107.66
Motherboard------------ASUS 1155 P8H67 REV 3.0 S/L----------------------------------------------- £78.16
RAM Corsair-------------CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 XMS3 8GB  --------------------------------------------£37.09
Hard Drive---------------Seagate Barracuda 3.5 inch 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB 6GB/S Internal---£57.67
PSU-----------------------Corsair CMPSU-430CXV2UK Builder Series CX430------------------------ £37.48
DVD drive ---------------Sony 24x Internal DVD Rewriter-----------------------------------------------£13.85
Windows 7----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------£43.50

I really need some help with the case, I don't want to spend over £40 and I would like it to have 2-4 pre installed fans, I am not overly fussed on the look. I am buying it on amazon so I would like then cases to be available from there.

Looks OK to me. The Antec 100 is a good case at around £40. Decent build quality, plenty of room and a 140mm and 120mm fan preinstalled.

EDIT: Just pointing out as well, the i3 is a dual core.

Also, this is a better graphics card and is cheaper.

EDIT2: In fact, if you do the whole thing on Aria, you could get this:

8GB Corsair Vengeance LP
MSI H77MA-G43 (Upgradable to Ivy Bridge)
Powercolor HD 6850
WD Caviar Blue 7200RPM 500GB
Corsair CX-430
Cooler Master Elite 335U
Samsung DVD Writer

Total - £445.55 including delivery
