New Gaming PC - Approx £1800

Hi guys,

It's my first time building a rig myself, and I just wanted to check with you to see if everything was compatible. I've been going over parts for a few weeks now and I've selected the one's that I wanted, and the ones that were recommended to me.

What do you think about this build? Let me know if there are any issues. Cheers! :)

  1. The ram clock speed is a little high, and ram is only as fast as your front side bus, which on that processor is 1600 MHZ.
  2. Ah yeah, thanks Jimmy.

    I've gone back and changed some of the components. I want to be absolutely sure they're compatible before I buy anything. Apologies if I seem over-cautious - it's just that I've never built my own PC before.

    Somebody recommended that I go for the last Sandybridge processor, rather than the new ivybridge, as there doesn't seem to be much difference and the ivybridge gets a lot hotter I've heard, so I've decided to go with Sandybridge.

    I've also opted for RAM with a clock speed of 1600Mhz.

    Here's the list.

    Would all of these components be compatible if I was to put this together? Do you think I'd have any problems running anything?
