Hi everyone, I want to do a new build but am not sure if all the components are compatible.

1100w PSU
ASUS P8H77 Motherboard
ASUS Nvidia GTX 660 OC 2GB
GSkill DDR3 16GB 2x 8Gb 1600MHz RipjawsX RAM CL10 Gaming Gamer Memory
intel Core i7-3820 3.6/3.8GHz Turbo Quad Core
WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000RPM 64MB SATA 6.0Gb/S 3.5" Internal HDD

I thought I would ask professionals before going ahead and buying all these parts.

give me a budget, location, what you are using this rig for, and what parts do you not need so that i can skip that out of the recommendation

right now there can be lots of room for improvement

ok id get something like this

-i7 3770
-the h77 board is fine
-ram is fine
-the 660 is fine
-get a regular seagate barracuda 1tb 64mb or a WD blue drive. velociraptors are not worth it
-try to find a 120gb SSD that fits into your budget
-a antec 520w power supply is good. go look in pccasegear. they should have something
