heya guys, i thought i'd embark on building a PC! and well... frankly... i have no idea what parts would suit me best

ok, so im about to order my case, its a Xpredator by Aerocool. Its a pretty big case that seems future proof to me (and i have a HUGE problem like "ohhh i dont know if this part will fit..." and like "hmm this £70 case might not be big enough..." seriously i have a MASSIVE size problem.. its like paranoia the case i'll get will be too small



anyway, that case will be about £100.

i already have a mouse (logitec G700) but i need a keyboard, preferably a cheap one, can you guys recommned any..?
then i need to get a monitor... WHOOSH another £100 out my budget

now these are my parts i was planning on getting

http://www.ebuyer.com/247677-corsair...x8gx3m2a1600c9 -RAM
http://www.ebuyer.com/363737-asus-p8...rboard-p8z77-m -Motherboard
http://www.ebuyer.com/152009-ocz-mxs...fan-ocz500mxsp -Power supplie
http://www.ebuyer.com/319639-seagate...ve-st1000dm003 -Hard drive
http://www.ebuyer.com/408627-exdispl...x660-dc2o-2gd5 -Graphics card

Later on im also planning on getting a few moar fans and SSD's

would these parts all fit in this case...? and would it later on fit SLI GTX660's..?

also could you recommend any cheaper but similar parts..? and also recommend a cheaper motherboard with 2 graphic card slots and 4 ram slots

Thank you all so much

(when i get all the parts i'll have the help of a computer guy who's a good friend to me, he says he'll help me build it so thats all down :)

You have more than enough space in there dont worry! :D 

And about the mobo, i think thats the best that your gonna get for the price range, asus, plus the one your looking at is mini-atx so that would mean you'll have even more space inside your case, although it would be more compact. If you want to oc in the future i'd even recomend you get the p8z77-lx as it is the best value for the price (even tho its abit more) good luck with the build ;)

id say a stronger psu...recommend at least 650-750 w for sli

thats just an example. cioolermaster has bad ratings in the past...great cases/bad psu's...not putting out advertised wattage.

any 650-750 w from antec, corsair, or xfx. 80+ rated
