Hey guys, I have been wanting to build my first PC for a while and am finally going to make my dream come true. I think I have pretty much have found a good selection of components but being a first timer and with no experience I am looking for a little help. I would just like to make sure that these parts are the best I can have or if there is anything else you would recommend that would be better. I have no clue if these parts are compatible, so if someone could tell me if they are or tell me how to check, it would help a lot. The parts I chose are down below. (All the reference links will be from newegg to make it slightly easier for me.)
I will be using the computer to store media as well as gaming (mainly: Diablo 3, call of duty, Battlefield 3, Crysis) and to do work for uni.
I have a limited budget however am ok with going a little over
Basically what I am stuck on is if these parts are all compatible and if I can do better for around the same price or if I can save a little bit of money by getting a cheaper gpu that wont sacrifice much performance.
CPU More powerfull, more overclockable CPU which consumes more electricity and does not support PCI-E 3
Motherboard Higher-end motherboard, packed with features which uses an older chipset therefore it doesn't support PCI-E 3
Memory Specification wise both memory kits are equal.The only difference is that the Vengeance kit looks better while the ripjaws are shorter which makes them easier to fir under a big air cooler
Hard Drive - The hard drive used in this build is much more reliable than the one you listed.It's also a bit faster, and a bit queter.
SSD - The Samsung 840 250GB is a very, very fast SSD.Much faster than the HyperX and its also in stock.
Graphics card - I chose a card which is currently out of stock but when it comes in stock it will be a hell of a deal.
If you can't afford it however i suggest you look into either a GTX 670 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007Z33SYA/?tag=pcpapi-20
Which isn't really that much slower
