i am going to start building a gaming pc but would want to know if all of my parts work together and are good at my 600$ budget


ASUS P8Z77-V LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Graphics card: EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB Graphics Card

Power: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX 12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply - CMPSU-750TXV2

i have 12G of Ram (ddr3) from my current dell xps 8300 along with the hard drive inside it (not sure) and its cpu (i7 2600 3.40 Ghz) 64-bit operating system.

once again its my first attempt so i dont know if i left anything out but thanks if you can help (looking to play skyrim with fallout nv and many other games)

The case and motherboard are a bit expensive for this budget and it is detracting from where the money should be spent in a gaming PC, the GPU.

These are the cases I recommend on a budget.

Zalman Z9+. $64

HAF-912. $60

Corsair 300R. $75

And the motherboard can be downgraded to an AsRock Z77 Extreme4 at no cost to performance. It is a very good budget board. It will support Crossfire/SLI (which from the 750W PSU I assume you want the option open).
AsRock Z77 Extreme4. $115

Now onto the GPU.
If you follow my advice (and got the expensive corsair case), you have saved $85, so you have ~$315 to spend on a graphics card. Its not enough for a GTX670, but enough for a HD7870. It will give much better performance and power draw compared to the 560Ti, especially after an overclock.
Gigabyte HD7870. $300
