First build, all parts compatable?

Hey everyone. I am neering purchasing all the parts for my first computer parts! I just want to make sure all the parts will work together as well if there's something I shoul change. Also if you know where I can get any of the parts cheeper that'd be great also, keep in mind I live in Australia so it needs to be a company that ships to Aus. Thanks guys :)

More about first build parts compatable
  1. too much clicking....please post component names and save us the RSI
  2. *Fixed. Sorry about that. Stupid of me.
  3. 1. Not very good SSD
    2. Good hard drive
    3. OK Video-card
    4. CPU is mobile, not good, and way better than your videocard, so it may bottleneck the performance
    5. Ok Blu-Ray Burner
    6. REALLY?!?!?! USE MORE RAM, IT WILL LOWER THE PERFORMANCE OF THE CPU
    7. Good case
    8. Bit skimpy on PSU, buy better one
    9. Nice mobo

    Sorry if I sound too mean.
    Here's a custom one for you: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/mrhi

    The CPU is not mobile, its just first gen Corei series.

    That being said, I would recommend a different CPU. Its 2 generations old, soon to be 3. It also would not work with the motherboard you have picked.

    I would go with a i5-3570K if you plan to overclock with a ASRock Extreme4 Z77.

    If not, go with a standard i5-34xx and an ASRock H77 motherboard.

    Here's the power supply I would use:

  5. Hmm, ok. Would it be worth paying the extra for the Intel Core i7 3820 oposed to other suggested options?

    I will change to that power supply, cheeper and I don't think I needed the extra 100 watts.

    What's wrong with the SSD? Any suggestions of a better one?
  6. Also, changing RAM to G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM (2x4GB) DDR3 - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=186_538_913&products_id=16934

    Realized the other RAM wouldn't be compatable with my procesor.
  7. Are you doing more than gaming that would justify the i7?
  8. Yeah, I looked into the reasons why you'd go either way and discovered that having an i-5 compared to an i7 does very little for gameing. Though I use my computer for many other things. Probably nothing that i7 has a huge affect on, but that's mainly because I haven't been able to use them with my current system. I think in the near future I'll get into something that will take advantage of the i7 and It's not a huge cost difference. So I think I'll pay the extra now to save me latter :)

    Thanks heaps for the help, if everything that is original post that isn't crossed out is compatable then the rest of the stuff I need to know is just some simple googling.
  9. Cool beans.
