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
    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:
  4. Best answer
    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 -

    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.
