I want to get a custom built pc with the NZXT H2 case. I was wondering if the specs that I have in my mind right now will have some compatibility problems. This are the specs I wanna get.

Intel Core i7-3820 Quad Core Processor 3.6GHz 10 MB cache LGA 2011

EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC
Signature2/Dual Fan/2048 MB GDDR5
Dual Dual-Link DVI/mHDMI/DP/SLI
Graphics Card (02G-P4-2687-KR)

Corsair Vengeance Blue 16 GB DDR3
SDRAM Dual Channel Memory Kit

Seagate Barracuda 7200 1 TB 7200RPM
SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64 MB Cache 3.5-Inch
Internal Bare Drive ST1000DM003

I Also wanted to know what you guys think about this case in terms of cooling. Thank you

There's no issues, but I don't see a motherboard. without one everything else will be useless.

Might I recomend that unless you plan on shelling out for a new CPU in the next few years you go with the I5-3570k, or perhaps the i7-3770k (The only reason I can see for going with the i7-3820 is if you plan on getting a new cpu relatively soon, so need the 2011 socket).

The 3770k performs just as well if not better than the 3820 and has an unlocked multiplier (as all k chips do) so has the ability to overclock. IMHO there is no need for to spend the extra $90 on the i7, as an overclock 3570k is just as good, in fact when gaming you won't be able to tell the difference.

Spend the money you save on a better graphics card or a solid state drive.

If you give me your budget I'd be happy to make suggestions.

I agree, get a 3570k and overclock it. Get something like an H100i water cooler to make up the price. For a motherboard I recommend something like an Asus P8Z77 V, if you're not on a budget maybe a Maximus V Extreme

I see... Ok thanks for your answer. I'll take your advise on the 3770k. About the motherboard, I really dont know a lot about motherboards so if you recommend me one i'll really appreciate it and about the gpu i think that is a great gpu the only one that I know that is better than that one is the gtx 690 and I can not afford that, but still thank you for answering.
