Will the components in this rig work together?

I'm making my computer, I'll do a fair bit of gaming. I've already bought my PSU and Graphics Card (only because they were cheap on eBay) and I'm going to buy the rest off amazon, just as soon as I know all the components work together! Thanks!


I'm kinda on a budget with what I can buy.
So far, I've got:

CPU: Intel Sandybridge Core i5 Quad-Core Processor (3.10GHz, 6MB Cache, Socket 1155)
http://amzn.to/J7xraX

Graphics: GeFore GTX 460 786mb

Going to buy:

Motherboard: Asrock P67 PRO3 REV 3.0 1155
http://amzn.to/J2X5B7

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATAIII 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 inch Internal Hard Drive OEM
http://amzn.to/IA452x

RAM: Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 XMS3 8GB Two Memory Module Kit
http://amzn.to/KvYJMa

DVD Drive/Write: Sony 24x Internal DVD Rewriter - Black
http://amzn.to/J32FQK

PSU: OCZ OCZ600MXSP-UK ModXStream Pro 600W ATX Power Supply
http://amzn.to/IwoVkR

Tower: Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid tower - ATX - no power supply ( ATX / PS/2 ) - black - USB/Audio
http://amzn.to/KcZ6It


So that's it. I wasn't sure if they all worked together or not. Is the PSU not powerful enough? Do I need a stronger one? Like I said, I'm kind of on a budget, so I couldn't buy "the best" stuff!!

Any help would be appreciated. It's my first build, so I need to do it right!!

Hi

All the components are compatible with eachother and the PSU is powerful enough :) 

Enjoy the build.

DONT BUY IT YET!

This motherboard is MUCH better and is the same price: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Z68-Motherboard-Express-ASRock-...

You will be fine with a 500W PSU, save £7: http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCZ-500W-ModXStream-Power-Suppl...

This Antec One case is much better and is only £5 more: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Antec-One-Midi-Tower-Case/dp/B0...


Haha, I'd seen that motherboard in the past but wasn't sure about it. If you say it's better then I'll go for it. Does the 500w psu you suggested have more than 1 6pin connector? As for the case, I'm not really too keen on it. Thanks though.
I was unsure about 500w or 600w because I would do gaming and a fair bit of editing on the pc too. Is 500w enough, it seems a bit too low to me?

quickly thought I'd mention, I do plan on overclocking.

I would then go for the 600W version if overclocking.
The Antec One doesn't have the LED fan and window but it has much better features, like USB3, great tool-less design and better cable management, plus 1 extra fan. Antec always have top quality cases I can assure you that :D
