Hello,

I was thinking about making my own PC.
Before I do I wanted to check if everything that I have chosen are compatible with each other.

CPU
Intel Core i7 875K (2.93GHz)
$310/£200

CPU Cooler
Cooler Mater DP6-9EDSA-0L
$11/£8

Motherboard
Asus P7P55 LX
$111/£72

RAM
16GB Corsair 2x8GB
£105

Case
Zalman Z7 Plus Black ATX Tower
$67/£44

Power Supply
Antec EA650 650W
$80/£52

Graphics
GTX 670

Hard Drive
Seagate Barrcuda 7200.12 1TB
£65

Optical Drive
Asus DRW-24B1ST
$23/£15

Operating System
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (OEM)/
(Professional???)
$100/£65

Keyboard
Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000
$15/£10

Mouse

If anything isn't compatible are there any minor changes that I would have to make.


I was wondering if The case I have chosen has space for a SSD.

If there is I wanted to add this:

Solid State Drive
64GB

You must be getting someone's hand me down; buying from a friend? Socket 1156 is certainly adequate for current games, but I would avoid it just for the reason that the motherboards are almost gone, not unlike the old socket 939 amd boards that dried up quickly. I don't know your vender, but I recommend you spend the extra money for socket 1155 sandy bridge, such as the 2500k, or ivy bridge, such as the 3570.
