It's been a while since I last built a system, around when the 1st Gen of Core Duo came out :D 

I would just like to ask if these components will work together.

Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H Motherboard, Socket 1155

Intel Core i5-3550 3.3GHz (3rd Gen)

Corsair 2x4GB RAM Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz DIMM 240-pin

Many thanks and Merry Christmas

Corsair Carbide 200r

very great build :D  yes it will work perfectly

it needs improvement on PSU and GPU
you may want to swap GS series to any CX or TX series from corsair. those have higher build quality. eventough for lower wattage 430-550

and get at least 6670, 6770 or 7750 :)  they have DDR5 which will be much better performance for similar price

Unfortunately I already own the GPU and PSU and can't really afford new ones atm what with just buying this.

Will the GS600 be ok for now? I can always upgrade it next month when I get paid again!

as i said, it will work perfectly

changing psu and gpu is has no advantage, negligible. you may want to spend later on 120GB SSD for a better working experience
