Feedback on my components choice for a gaming computer
After years of using laptops for several years, I want to build myself a nice new PC for gaming (Battlefield 3), and for making music (Reason). As a side note, I already have an external soundcard (Emu 0404)
I put them together by looking at the recommended/highest rating elements, but I'm only a semi-geek and I don't know too much about hardware. As such, I would like to know : (i) if anything is missing (do I need a cooler for the processor ? I won't be overclocking) (ii) if any of the elements are "overkill" compared to my needs (e.g. the motherboard/screen) (iii) if all these elements are compatible (iv) if, as a computer building newbie, any of these elements will be pose problems for me when I put it all together
Thanks in advance for your help
Here is a screenshot of my components :
