  1. You've done your homework. Excellent build. My recommendation would be to get the i5 3570k Save $100 and you won't notice a change in performance.

    edit: and yes they are all compatible.
  2. Good build, will last years and is all compatible.
  3. its compatible. just a few ideas on budget shifts if necessary

    1. I7 in a gamer build is basically unnecessary for the cost, and you pay like 100(?) dollars for extremely minimal performance gain as hyperthreading is near useless in gaming.

    2. Heads up if you are totally dead set on the z77 sabertooth, that is fine, but the mobo is essentially a cost premium and basically performs the same as the ~180$ mobos

    3. 16 gb ram is fine, depending on how many programs you have on, 16gb ram doesn't serve much of a gaming purpose, unless you use ram itself to load stuff(which require tweaking)

    4. Possible investment in a moderately sized SSD for boot, and several games with loading screens?

    5. I recommend getting low profile ram as they get in the way of cpu coolers

    6. after you have everything you want, if you want to accessorize your comp with optional stuff liek more fans/fan controllers/cable sleeves etc feel free to do so with the leftover stuff)
