Your parts will work together but they are no very well matched, so you will not get the best performance for the $$ spent.
Please give us a little more information so we can tweak the configuration.

What will be the main use for the computer.
In which country will you be purchasing your parts.
What would be your max budget.
Do you have a full Retail version of an OS, or an OEM version. please give details.

Thanks for the updates.

Very nice case.
If this is the GPU you have? It will give you reasonable game performance at mid range settings but do not expect top results at maxed out settings.

The parts selected will support any single present GPU you decide to use at a later date.

Your welcome, Posted Image
A couple of items I think you should add to your list.
A anti static wrist strap like this, available most sites, > http://www.scan.co.u...lip-a-must-have!
A internal mini motherboard system speaker, > http://www.overclock...aker_45058.html >> The PC speaker is generally the first output device to be activated during the boot process. It is used to communicate error codes.

The CPP site is a little limited with eRetailers. If you are prepared to do some searching? The below link is worth using, search terms will give different results, Ie. Asrock Z77 extreme4 vs Asrock Extreme4
> http://www.staticice.co.uk/

Any questions about the build? Should you decide to change parts, please let us know.
