This will be the first time I will be building my own PC.
The question is: these parts are compatible? PSU wattage calculation, ram, mobo, case and so on..

CPU: AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core

Motherboard: ASRock 990FX Extreme4 ATX AM3+

Memory: G.Skill Sniper Gaming Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM

SSD: Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" SSD

Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB

Case: Cooler Master HAF 922 ATX Mid Tower

Power Supply: Corsair 750W ATX12V / EPS12V

Optical Drive: Asus BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer

Also, I am not sure about the motherboard, if I should grab the asrock 990fx extreme 4 or extreme 3.
Thanks in advance.

you may wanna settle down for ~600w psu as its gonna be enough
otherwise, all good. Extreme4 mobo gets my vote

What is the budget here? I would personally go Intel instead of AMD with this type of system.

I would personally recommend a Crucial M4 SSD instead of the Samsung 840. But if you want, wait for the M5 to come out.


The standard 840 is newer than the M4, they're both good drives. I'd go with a Vertex 4 or Vector myself.

Really? I calculated using the new egg psu calculator and added +20% to the total result

I don't have a precise budget because I am not shopping in dollar.
For an intel build I would grab:
mobo - MSI MB p/ Intel Z77A-G45 LGA 1155 (I might get gtx 660 ti now and later sli)
cpu- i7 3770 (I dont plan overclocking)
What you guys think?

I thinking about getting the samsung 840 pro, not the regular one. Also the vertex 4 is a really good option too for me.
