So, I am building a gaming PC.
I plan to play games, browse the web, and download and play digital games as well.
I have compiled a list of (hopefully) complete parts and a friend said "geekstogo" are the experts.
Here I am, opinions please!

Gday nerdle97, Posted Image.
You parts are compatible, but you have not listed RAM, *memory for the Motherboardand a operating system.
Please supply the brand/model of the PSU you intend to use so that we may calculate it is correct for the system.

Have you researched the performance you will get in the games you are going to play, taking into account the monitor resolution you will be using.

Here is a review where you can see that the video card is a little weak for some games, Please do read the whole review. > nerdle97

Yes, thanks for the reply!
First I am going to be using two, 4gb ram sticks from corsair.
Next I have a 600w psu. I have checked with the cables and plugs, they all work.
Finally, I would be playing games like bf3-4, civ 5, Nd the division, if that comes out on PC.
Mostly on normal settings, whatever.

Thanks for the info.
We try to make sure that a build Boots first time without problems. that's why I asked for the Brand/model of the PSU, a poor quality one could severely damage the rest of the computer the first time you switch on.
Is the RAM on the QVL list for your motherboard? Is it new? a kit? Please give the model numbers.

It is older, but it will do the trick. DDR3 is listed on the motherboard and that's all I need!
I will post sometime how my rig turns out!
