Hello guys, if someone can take sometime and just tell me if this is gonna be a solid gaming rig. I do not overclock and currently I have a 22" inch monitor but prolly in the future I will go for something bigger. My budget is roughly 1000€ aka 1300$ but that was my top limit and I seem to have overdone it a bit :p 

But I have the option to remove the Baracuda disk, buy a cheeper mobo and remove the Agility 3, but on the other hand if I'm buying a total fresh new rig after 6 years I think it deserves those things :) 

Anyway my rig:

1x Intel Core i5 3550 3.3GHZ 6M LGA1155 BOX
1x GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H, LGA1155, Z77
1x Corsair DDR3 8GB PC1600 (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8)
1x Seagate1TB SATA 6Gb/s 7200 64MB 3,5" Barracuda ST1000DM003
1x OCZ Agility 3 90GB 2.5" SATA3 MLC
1x GIGABYTE AMD HD7850 2GB (GV-R785OC-2GD)
1x Corsair 500W CX2 (CMPSU-500CXV2EU)
1x Cooler Master CM-690 II Advanced (USB 3.0) RC-692A-KKN5

Basicly just tell me its good go fricking buy it already :p  cos I been reading forums, review, techs for over 2 weeks now and I'm going nuts already. So just is it good will everything work together etc...

And please no go AMD :p 

Thanks so very much guys

You can downgrade the mobo since you're not overclocking. Otherwise well done.

looks good to me. I'lll suggest a mobo and ssd change:

either this mobo:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
or this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

the MSI is $30 cheaper, the Gigabyte is $20 cheaper.

use the savings for this larger 120 GB SSD:

you can also save another $30 with this video card

its clocked lower, but you can overclock to match, and XFX will cover that in their double lifetime warranty

Well I figured if you're slightly over budget it wouldn't hurt to downgrade it.

Nah just use the money your saved on the mobo for something else. What GPU will you be using?

(I saw your GPU)
check out the core i5 3450

one more question i just noticed that the i5 3550 has intergrated graphics and the ud3h has intergrated graphics. are these two the same two things, cause the only reason im buying a motherboard with igc is if my GFX dies, so I can still use the computer.

thanks

Actually the mobo doesn't have integrated graphics, only the CPU.
