Do my chosen components work

hey I'm looking to build a new computer and have been looking a different components and would like to know if the ones I've chosen are good and will work together. Also if I can get better parts for the same price or cheaper. I have a budget of £500. And do motherboards have a maximum amount of ram the can hold?

HDD- 1TB Western Digital AV-GP 24x7 Enterprise Hard Drive - £65

Processor- Intel quad core i5-3570K - £160

PSU - 650w CiT Black edition - £26

Sound card- Asus Xonar DG5.1 - £23

Ram- 8GB Mushkin Enhanced blackline frostbite- £33

Mobo- Gigabyte SKT-1155 Z77-D3H - £76

Case - CiT Vantage Midi Mesh Gaming Case with HD Audio, 4 Fans, Card Reader and No PSU - Black

GPU - Nvidia geforce GTX650 1GB- £100

Also do I need anything else?

  1. -drop down to a i5 3330 or a 3450. whichever is cheaper
    -dont use craopy power supplies. id suggest a xfx 550w
    -skip the sound card. its not worth it at this budget
    -id get a h77m from asrock. the h77m-d3h from gigabyte is my other recommendation. which ever is cheaper
    -use a better case like a antec 302
    -get a radeon 7850. 7850 is the minimum in all of my gaming builds. anything lower wont perform well

    Does the antec come with its own fans?
  3. yes. there are 2 of them. id still change the rest of your build to what i suggested

    the i5 3450 and 3330 are only £7 cheaper, so sub i just stick with the i5-3570k.
    And thanks i'll get the gigabyte you recommended, the case, the psu.
    i found 2 GPU's which one is better and if they both do roughly the same job and is there much difference?

  5. just get the msi

    no you should stick to a i5 3330. the h77 motherboard doesnt allow overclocking with the i5 3570k, therefore its pointless to put a k chip in a h series chipset
