I would appreciate if somebody would answer if these parts are compatible with each other. Well, here are the parts-

SAMSUNG Internal DVD Writer 22X DVD R 8X DVD RW 8X DVD R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model SH-222BB/RSBS

Seagate Barracuda Green ST1500DL003 1.5TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Antec EarthWatts Series EA-750 Green 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Continuous Power Supply

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9

ASUS P8H77-V LE LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i5-3470 Ivy Bridge 3.2GHz (3.6GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637i53470

And another thing, what would be a good graphics card, thanks for helping. (If you did)

750W is overkill for any single GPU, but if you plan to upgrade to CF/SLI, it is fine. For GPU, I recommend the GTX 670 if you can afford it, or the Radeon 7850 if you cannot afford the 670.

Thanks man, so all those parts work together fine?

As long as the CPU and MOBO is the right socket and the GPU isn't too long for the case, it is good. However, could you link me to the case you have?

get a 7850 from asus, sapphire or xfx (double d cooler). also if you are, get a pc power and cooling mk3 600w from microcenter for 49.99 after MIR. better than the earthwatts

id also get the i5 3450 if it is cheaper since there is no performance increase other than in the intergrated GPU

Considering the PSU choice, he probably wants to CF/SLI. That Antec is a great unit anyway.

So the 7850 will be compatible?

yep.

@azeem40; i suggested the mk3 600w since he will never use the power of a 750w psu
