Checking compatiblity for homebuilt system

Hello,

I barely know anything about hardware, my stephfather says it's all okay, he is also the one that's gonna build it, but I still want a second opinion as to whether or not all the components are compatible.

PSU:530W Thermaltake Hamburg
Main board: ASROCK970 extreme4 am3+
CPU: AMD Fx6200 Sixcore 14mb cache am3+
RAM: 4GB G.kill Sniper dd3kit 1866MHz
GPU: Geforce Gtx560

The full system will cost me about 600 euros and I don't want to go much higher than that. At first I was thinking about getting an AMD HD7770 for the GPU but I read in a review that the GTX560 is better. Is this true or should I just stick to the AMD 7770?

Help would be much appreciated since I really want to do this thing right this time, last time I bought a laptop and they told me it would handle all my games but it didn't, at all.

  1. All your parts are compatible and the 560 is better but you will generally pay more for it.

    Wow, that is an amazing build for the price! Defiantly go with that build, and if you have a little extra money, try to get a 7870 gpu.
