Hi, My name is Theodore and Im building my first computer! I had some questions regarding the parts i plan on purchasing tho. I already have a processor and ram so I don't need to buy any of those.

Here are my parts that I picked out from shopping last night!

Computer Case

http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Elite-430-RC-430-KW...



MotherBoard

Cooling Unit

Power Supply

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0035WTD2Q/ref=gno_car...



Computer Fans http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0026ZPFC0/ref=gno_car...


My questions are if all of these wonderful parts will work together!
From what I understand is that the motherboard design is ATX which that case supports it as well as the fans being 120mm seeing that the fans pre installed in the case are 120mm I would think they work together.

Any help with this would be extremely helpful!
Thank you

Best solution

It looks pretty good man! What CPU are you using though? I really wouldn't use an Intel motherboard if you plan to overclock, and I don't really know about using a CM PSU, I'm a fan of Corsair so maybe you wanna use one of those because they're trusted, just saying, but everything else I approve

Yeah I'd so so! You have quite the system build ideas all here, I'd go with that Corsair PSU, all the goodies you listed above and get building!

are you planning on buying a GPU? if you don't play games you don't need a huge one, but I think your computer would be more responsive even if you bought a low end card. I used to have an NVidia GT520 and it was a good card for using the internet and things like that, but it couldn't play games very well. I think you can buy one for around $20 on sale and I think it would speed your computer up a little. The reason isn't graphics, it's for the proccesing cores that devour small packets of information. the proccesor looks fast so if you don't play games you won't miss much without one, but if you do play games I would highly recomend getting a GPU with your build. your PSU would run a GPU along with the rest of your things, but if you get the 520 it uses very little power and increases you computer's response speed.
