    Hi,

    I´d like to build my first gaming PC. I´ve chosen some components but I am not 100% sure if they are compatible. There are many good recomended builds on the internet but the thing is, that many components have usually higher price here in Slovakia and some are not available. That´s why I hade to make some alternative choices. Could you check my list of chosen components and give some suggestions? Thank you.

    +1 on a quad if you have the cash... you can save some money by getting a lesser PSU as well. With a single card, a Corsair (or any quality brand) 550W PSU will easily handle a 460 and quad cpu overclocked.

    Also, caviar green is a SLOW drive. Get the blue or preferably the caviar black.

    A 650w corsair tx or hx would be sufficient,even if you go sli.Furthermore,the 6870 would be a better buy in my opinion, as it is faster and similarly priced.
