Hi, I just want to know if the parts I have choosen are all compatible with each other or not, This is my first time building a computer and I want to make sure I didn't miss anything or did something stupid. :p

What are you using this build for? And what is your exact budget?

I may be able to build something better.

Also, do you need an OS and/or a monitor?

It looks good. I would get this Radeon HD 7950- it's $38 cheaper

Also, if I were you I would get a beefier PSU (one that can handle 2 HD 7950's in crossfire, just to make future upgrades smoother. ) Even though your PSU says crossfire certified, it only has 2 PCI express connectors, and your video card uses 2. I would get this one instead... 650 watts bronze certified should push two HD 7950's.

For $13 more, you can get 16GB of 2133MHz RAM, which will perform much better than 1600MHz RAM.

Other than that your build looks good to go :)

Thats false. You will barely notice the difference.


Yup.

You actually won't notice any difference unless you plan on doing heavy video rendering or adobe work.

RAM speeds don't really matter for Intel as much as AMD.
