Hey guys. I'm currently making a build for a gaming station. I have one ready, and I'm in the process of double checking it before I order. I have about $1100 to spend, and I'm right on the mark on that.

I have two monitors, a 24"in and a 19". Obviously I play on the 24" and at a 1080p resolution. I plan to overclock the processor.

|PART LIST|
CASE: Zalman Z11 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

PSU: CORSAIR HX series HX650 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

GPU: GIGABYTE GV-N770OC-2GD GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54670K

CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM3+

Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme6 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

RAM: G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBSR

HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Questions:

Is everything compatible?
When I get all the items, will I be able to install them all in the case, everything fit fine, run it and install Win7, then play games without any issues?
Will it all fit together?
Is everything a suitable choice?

I really need to know if it's all compatible, I'll have lots of trouble if something isn't due to difficulties refunding items. Thanks for help, let me know if you need to know anything else.

Agree with Latios - everything looks good though I'm surprised there isn't room for an SSD either in $1100.

I do have a question (and it relates to a thread I just posted):

you're getting 2133 RAM when the board recommends 1600 or less. If you just put the RAM in and do nothing, will it read as 1600 or 2133?

RAM rated for a higher speed will work fine on motherboards that don't support it. The RAM will just clock itself appropriate. In fact, I'm pretty sure it's more like the RAM is rated up to that speed and that it doesn't necessarily need to operate at the speed.

As for what is read, BIOS will always report the memory controller's speed, not the memory speed. Something like Speccy may report what it should be.
