Hi I'm looking to get:

An amd fx-4 quad core 4100

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 AMD 990FX (Socket AM3+) DDR3 Motherboard

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB...


Sapphire HD 6850 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

BitFenix Shinobi "Core" USB3.0 Gaming Windowed Case - Black

I currently have a 750 watt power supply. I am a novice a building pc's and i was wondering if all these parts were compatible and cost effective. Any help would be much appreciated.

Yes they are but the parts are all cheaper from here

An amd fx-4 quad core 4100

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/10-cashback-amd-fx-4100-...

Asus M5A99X EVO AMD 990X AM3+ Motherboard = better and cheaper mobo
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-m5a99x-evo-amd-990x...(x16)-atx

XFX HD 6870 AMD Radeon Graphics Card - 1GB = money saved on mobo means a better GPU for £5 more than yours
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-xfx-hd-6870-4200mhz-...

BitFenix Survivor CORE = Cheaper and better cooled case, for quieter cooler operation
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/bitfenix-survivor-core-b...!

Total cost of mine from scan = £368 Total cost of yours from overclockers = £376, and dont forget mine has a better GPU, case and mobo...

Also what make is your PSU? and do you already have DDR3 ram ?

For RAM I'd go with Corsair Vengeance or Gskill RipjawsX

Well, you will need ddr3. You can't use any other ram.
