I am going to make a new computer on a tight budget of 620 and here are the parts I will be using :-


Case - Zeus Midi Tower Gaming Computer PC - £32.45
PSU - Corsair CMPSU-500CXV2UK Builder Series - £47.98
Motherboard ASRock Z77 Pro4-M Motherboard - £72.71
Processor - i5-3570K - £160.66
SSD - OCZ Agility 3 (60GB) - £47.50
Video Card - AMD RADEON HD 6870 - £95.24
Memory (RAM) - Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 - £39.99
DVD/CD driv - -Sony AD-7280S-0B 24x Internal SATA - £14.24
Wifi Card - TP-Link TL-WN781ND 150Mbps - £9.00
LCD Monitor - LG E2242C-BN LED LCD 21.5" VGA Monitor - £83.00

I wanted to ask if all of these part would fit together and will work without any problem because this is my first time building a computer so I want to make sure that everything will work without any problems and all the cables will fit.

Your help will be much appreciated ! :)

When your on a budget like that I would sudjest getting a APU based machine... Honestly anything less than $750 should be a AMD APU based PC it will allow you to get a great deal of graphical power in a small budget, while still loading up on high speed RAM and getting a bigger monitor to see the graphical pleasures!!!

Cut some money out of your CPU and Video Card and put it other places is what Im trying to get to.

I was going to get the AMD FX 6100 but when I saw reviews, they all said that the i5 was better. But can you tell me if all these parts will work together as I am going to use my dad's 22" full hd led tv as my monitor and I dont have more space for a bigger screen. I just want to make sure that if I get all these parts I can make the pc without any cable, bios, or compatibility problems

Read the reviews on Tigerdirect or NewEgg... Everyone who bought one gives it 4+ stars it has a average rating of 4.9/50 with over 70 reviews...

But I would STILL sudjest a A8 cause you can save a little cash now, and if your not happy put a 6770 in Crossfire with it... it saves electricty and money. Plus they perform just fine on the CPU end for games.

Ill be honest, NO setup is guarenteed without some sort of troubles... the big thing is can you overcome them? Honestly go to the motherboards website and check the compatibility list. Its the only way to tell.
