    As some may know, I'm trying to build a pc.

    Just asking if I have a good combo of components, and if they'll work with each other. Also , shout out if you think what I have got could be swapped fror something else...

    Intel i5 3750K Ivy Bridge http://tinyurl.com/8tzn2x9 174.94

    Corsair 8GB 1.6GHz http://tinyurl.com/7vzbpsc 38.65

    Motherboard Asus P8Z77-V-Pro OR The intel Z77 version ( Think it has SLI)

    Graphics MSI GeForce GTX 570 HD

    PSU Thermaltake Smart Series 850w http://goo.gl/OGOAw 98.22
    Although I've told to get a sea gate xfx?

    Hard Drive Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

    Case CiT Vantage Midi Mesh Gaming Case http://tinyurl.com/9k3rs2w 30.99 or a Coolmaster Elite something or other if this wont fit a ATX MB.

    I've been told that because the gtx 570 is so big, I'll need a bigger case... So what should I look for?
    So far, cases are 500x200x500...
    Big enough?
    Otherwise there is a coolermaster haf 922 which is 60x20x50-full tower...

    I just need to know if everything is fine, and if I'm ready to start ordering my parts

    Ref the Hard drive, for what its worth, i'd go with samsung, generally slightly more expensive but worth the extra quality than WD and more reliable imo.

    I'll have a look.

    Now moved on to PSU's and cases.

    Psu : something that'll be reliable.

    Case : sturdy and roomy for cooling. Needs to look good. The don't know what a good price is... But I'm willing for 30-60 of my budget to go on it.

    I've got 630 pounds to get CPU(£140), gpu(£240), psu, and case and a monitor. Which sounds like a lot, but id rather save money, than spend 120 quid on a case.... One thing that looks good enough for me to gaze at it lovingly, admiring my work.
