First Build, is it all compatible.

Okay so, im currently looking to build my first gaming pc will be used for modern games such as skyrim crysis 2 ect ect, anyway back to the point, for my processor im looking at the AMD Bulldozer FX-6100 6 Core 3.30GHz and the motherboard the Asus M5A78L-M. i know these are compatible as im buying as a bundle... for my PSU i've gone for corsair as they are reliable and wont blow my other components like a cheap one would its the Corsair CMPSU-650TXV2UK Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 High Performance 650W, i dont think ill need more watts than that but its my first build so i really dont know. for my DVD drive ive gone for the LG BH10LS30.AUAR10B 10x Internal Blu-Ray BDRW for burning ect ect, for my secondary dvd drive im taking interest in the Samsung SH-B123L/BSBP 12x Blu-ray Player not sure if compatible or will fit in my case what im wanting would like to know if it will fit and work with my motherboard thanks. for my graphics card ive gone with the AX7750 1GBD5-DH as i really think this card is great for its price... for my hard drive i have chosen the OCZ AGT3-25SAT3-120G Agility 3 120GB SATA III 2.5 inch SSD not sure if it will fit or compatible.. would like to know:) and finally the case, really like this case here it is NZXT Phantom USB 3.0 Big Tower Chassis will someone check if the SSD, and dvd drives will fit in the slot and check there compatibility with the motherboard too please, and if all is compatible would this be a good first build or not? thanks in advance.

  1. budget?
  2. I would go for an Intel G870 for £70 instead of an AMD and spend the money saved on a better graphics card if you want to play games. Would need a different mobo though such as a Z77.
  3. about £600 to £800 maybe more if necessary
  4. here you go:

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£174.94 @ Amazon UK)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (£117.98 @ Dabs)
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£36.19 @
    Storage: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£59.99 @ Ebuyer)
    Video Card: HIS Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card (£227.99 @
    Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case (£78.49 @
    Power Supply: XFX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply (£92.99 @ Amazon UK)
    Total: £788.57

    *the PSU is enough to power and overclock dual 7950s.

    *the i5 3570k rapes any FX CPU

    *add a SSD later, right now you need to focus on raw performance.
