Will this system work?

I just wanted to know if this system is compatible. I am fairly new to the building aspect of computers but I built my first gaming PC and it runs amazingly! I'm now looking for a possible build to sell. I put this together as a fairly good gaming PC. What do you guys think? Please leave any suggestions on how to make it better!

More about will system work
  1. You only need 8gb of ram, so you can put some money towards the GPU.
  2. Thanks Ill edit the build right now
  3. If you want to go with 16GB of ram and pick up an ASROCK board with Z77, you'll get RamDisk software which would make that 16GB more useful. Otherwise ya, drop it to 8gb.

    Also, you won't need a 2gb GPU unless you have the power to handle turning up settings at 1080P or higher. So either invest in at least a 7850 level of performance or higher at 1080p before picking up a 2gb card.
  4. That's much better, now you have a more balanced system and a good card for gaming.
    You might consider the 660 ti, if you want to spend more 50$ : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133466
    It's not from evga, but it's a decent brand.
  5. Nice, So this system will work? I think I might try to sell this to a friend or family member
