Is this a good setup? Will it all work together?

Hey guys i would like to know if this is a good second build. I have spent hours specifying on what i want and if it will work.




I have a 500W Dynex PSU already.

It comes out to be at $275.97.

I will buy this Graphics Card eventually.

If you're buying the 650, you don't need the i3-3225, but the i3-3220, the only difference is the on die gpu, which is the intel hd 4000 in the 3225, and the 2500 in the 3220.

You should get a dual channel kit :

You don't need that mobo with that cpu, get a h77 mobo :

Also in my opinion the price of the 650 non it is too step, the 650 ti is just a bit more :

i was reading that the intell chipsets hd graphics only works with the z77 mobo.

The ram is 2 4gb faster than a single 8 gb?

and ill go with you're cpu selection.

I would also like 4 ram slots.

No, any chipset(designed for ivybridge) has the support for intel graphics and with dvi,hdmi ports(not all of the mobos), the h77m has three ports vga,dvi,hdmi.
Yes, dual channel ram is faster than single channel.
For four dimm slots, there's the h77 pro 4 :

There's something about that ram, it's being reported with failures by costumers.
I rather get the g.skill ares ram.
Like i said, the 650 2GB is too expensive, the 2GB is useless in such card, get the 650 ti, it's a better card.

Yes, some with lower detail of course, and depending on the resolution.
But it will play any game.
