Hey guys, first time posting so go easy on me!

I'm building a gaming PC and have a £500 budget i currently have all the components in mind and want to hear your opinions and suggestions, also im a bit confused about the compatability of all these parts as well and since 2 heads are better than one or in this case millions are better than one I hope you guys can help.

So here's the build:

Graphics Card: MSI Power Edition GeForce GTX 650 Ti (£109)
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX...

Processor: i3 3220 Dual Core 3.3GHz (£84)
http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/Inte...

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2PV (£40)
http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Motherboards+...

Power Supply: Corsair CX 430 WATT (£35)
http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Power+Supplie...

RAM: Corsair 8GB (2X4GB) (£40)
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/8gb-(2x4gb)-corsair-ddr3-vengeance-low-profile-jet-black-pc3-12800-(1600mhz)-non-ecc-unbuffered-cas-

Case: ARIAnet Storm Type-R Black Midi (£33)
http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Cases/Micro+A...

TOTAL = £345

Im especially having trouble with the motherboard choice and if your wondering where the hard disk is I already have one from my previous PC (WD Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM Internal Hard Drive) :bounce:

the x6x chipset will need a bios update for a ivy cpu to post in them. i would call the seller and ask what rev the pcb of the mb is at. the rev 1.0 boards need bios F3 to post. the other rev look like there fine.

Only open sugestion i would have is the the MSI 1gb 7850 is only slightly more expensive than the 650ti. the performance gap between the 650ti and the 7850 is sizable, and current promotions would get you bioshock infinite as well as tomb raider codes for free.
