So I've decided to build my first gaming PC from scratch and i was just wondering if these parts would be compatible with each other. I'm mostly just concerned whether there would be enough power supplied to the components from the 750W PSU and the compatibility between the VGA and Mobo. thanks! :bounce:

The z77 motherboard is meant for overclock and the 3470 cpu cannot be overclocked..we need to know your budget, monitor resolution and what kind of gaming you intend to do with this build?

Well as a monitor, im just using my flat screen which i have no idea of the specs. All I know is it supports HDMI and its 1080p, 40". And i plan on playing games like battlefield 3, Need for speed, Assassins Creed, etc. Are you suggesting i down grade the motherboard to something like;?
