Hi, I am wondering if all these parts will work together, please nobody suggesting an I5 as i am set on the parts i am getting(unless they are incompatible).The main thing is, are the mobo and power supply compatible?
i read on a review that the mobo has an 8 pin power plug(along them lines)-What Does this mean

Mobo
Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3

CPU
AMD Bulldozer FX-8150

GPU
msi radeon 7850 1gb

Psu
corsair cx600

Ram
Corsair Vengeance 8 GB : 2 x 4 GB Memory - DIMM 240-pin - 1600 MHz ( PC3-12800 ) - 1.5 V

CPU cooler
Hyper 212 Plus-Or Evo

Case
antec 600(i like it :D  )

hdd
samsung f3 1tb

Yep, its all fine to go together.

EDIT: Missed the 8pin question.
Some motherboards have 8pin CPU power connectors while others have four, theres no difference between them. If your PSU is 4pin and mobo is 8pin, just plug the 4pin into the socket that it fits (usually closer to the CPU), it will run fine without those other 4 connectors.

I'm not going to suggest an i5, but I will suggest you use an FX-6300 instead. It's cheaper and it benchmarks higher in games.

I also wouldn't get a 760G board (old tech) when boards with the newer 970 chipset are only like $5-10 more.

Are you getting a good deal on the case?

But yes, it's compatible. :)

One reason for the mobo is that it has integrated graphics as you can see I will get a graphics card but I would like to use my computer before I get the gpu

Does the 970 have integrated graphics?
Thanks

P.s the case is £20 brand new

Only the Chipsets with a "G" in the name have built in graphics. If you can find a 880G or 890GX board for a good price, those are a full generation newer. Here in the US, 880G are often very inexpensive and they come with SATA 6Gb.

Also what is the benefits with a newer board? I would prob upgrade anyway at a later date
