Building a new PC. Just wanting to double check it all works together before pressing the purchase button.

Will be used for gaming and 3D/video editing and such. Also trying to future proof a little while keeping it cheap-ish.

Will be playing GuildWars2, ArmaII (DayZ), Eve Online, pretty much everything really.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Ditch the Motherboard unless you plan to CF/SLI since you aren't OCing. What PSU and case do you have? Get a cheaper SSD that is just as reliable. Try the Samsung 830 128GB.

Case: Antec 900
PSU: Antec TP-750 Blue

Wanted to stick around the 180GB for the SSD since I have a fair bit I'd like to keep on it, so just get a Samsung 180GB? I had heard that Intel were very reliable. Also, could you suggest a better MB that is just as reliable if I shouldn't bother with the one I have?

No such thing as a 180GB Samsung 830. H77 Pro4/MVP.
