Computer component compatibility check

I,am about to order new components, and i don't know for sure if they all are compatible with each other.
My budget is/was $995, i live in europe so that number is converted from €800,-.

I,am going to order all my parts from Alternate, not from Newegg.

So please take a look:

  1. those should all work together nicely.

    I'll suggest this PSU over the coolermaster. higher quality parts:

    both are overkill for the setup, but with the heavy power use of the FX chips when overclocked, you'll have plenty of room for overclocking.

    Otherwise,, you've got a good system
  2. Ok, thanks

    I will go for the Corsair then.
    What exactly means "Overkill" when speaking of PSU's?

    Thanks!

  3. I think that case is hideous, overpriced and unnecessary, but I can understand it might be visually appealing to some. I'm not understanding the amd 8 core choice, but thats not what your asking I guess.

    Yes those parts are compatible and I also strongly agree with the psu comment. If you think you might run an SLI configuration in the future 750w psu is not a bad idea. Corsair makes good power supplies, but their customer service is a joke. Have fun.
  4. Yea i know the Case is over expensive and not needed, but this is my first build, and could't find any cases where everything fits in.

    Suggestions, Advice?

  6. cases are very subjective. unless you have a small case and/or an exceptionally long video card, you shouldn't have trouble making things fit. go for one that looks nice to you
