Hi Guys,
I have put together some components fpr my first build and just wanted to check if it was 100% compatible. This costs just over £800 which was my budget. Opinions and possible changes are appreciated aslong as it does not make the build more expensive.
Thanks Alot.

Those are all compatible. If this build is for gaming though, I would look into an intel build over amd. A 2500k would be around $30 more, and is much better for gaming. I'm saying this not knowing what you use your computer for though.

This PC will be for gaming yes. Will the 8150 be able to run all the games out at the moment like Battlefield 3 at an average of over say 30 FPS? If it will then I'm fine with it but if not I may have to spend the little extra for the i5 2500k.

Thanks

For Battlefield, CPU does not matter as much as more cpu intensive games like wow and starcraft. But overall consensus is for gaming intel performs better.

Here some benches for a 7870.

Also - That WD Green HD is good for storage, but it is not very fast for a system drive. I would look into getting a faster storage drive, or add a 128 gb ssd.

So the graphics card is defiantly good enough. The only other thing was I will be playing abit of Arma 2, Arma 3(when it is released) and Dayz. Which are fairly CPU demanding so would the 8150 perform well enough or would you just recommend the intel i5 3550, as that is pretty close to the 8150 in terms of price?

I would definately recommend the 3550. Keep in mind that if you wish to overclock, you will want a 'k' An overclocked 2500k will outperform a 3550, for the same price.

Ok thanks. I think i'll go for the i5 3550(as I will not be overclocking) and the Asus p8z11-v LE Motherboard.

Thanks for all the help!:)
