Building new gaming computer, help with compatibility and any possible

hi, i am hoping to buy and build (for the first time) this gaming computer for around £700 to £800, give or take a couple of tens. i would like it to be able to run most games such as Battlefield 3 and planetside 2 with reasonably high settings with a good fps. i just need help with any compatibility issues and possible changes to the hardware. thanks. (purchasing December to January)

The parts are :

More about building gaming computer compatibility possible
  1. Low profile ram.
    You should purchase the ssd later. Windows will devour 60gb.
  2. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-11199-00-20G-HD7870-GDDR5-Graphics/dp/B007MUJL2E/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1350491298&sr=1-1
    An AMD 7870 is slightly better and costs less. Look at this review.

    This will pay for the agility III 128 gb ssd.
    Also You should get a 1 tb or 500 gb HD now.
  3. I agree with Adgjlsfhk, but I would check tom's hardware graphics card guide for the best card for this month. Its updated every month.
  4. Do you actually plan to overclock?

    if you can recommend a good cooling option for the overclocking, and if the mobo is suitable enough then defiantly yes
  6. The CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO should do the trick.

    Thanks, much appreciated, just one more bit of advice is the mobo a good choice or is there something better for around £100
  8. That's a good price for the one you have there. The ASRock Extreme4 is more expensive.
