Ii'm not looking for "Better" stuff, since I'm on a budget. Just need to know if all of these will work together and I don't have clashing stuff.

use pcpartpicker. It will tell you if part are compatible. Just skiming thorough it looks good. I'd get a "cheaper" PSU tho.

Yeah it will all work good. I would recommend getting only 1 stick (4GB) of that RAM and save 50 bucks and put it towards your GPU budget though, you can get into the middle-range sweet spot and add RAM later when you have money. 4GB has gaming uses covered.

You can also get a lower wattage PSU, the one you have is more than double of what that system will draw; not a good spot usually on the PSU efficiency curve.

Change the CPU to Intel. Its worth the extra money. PSU is Overkill for that build. I could make you a better build for about the same amount of money.

Parts are compatible but you can cut back the cost some by getting a cheaper psu and memory. Here's a better build for you to consider.

I also recommend this one over what you had in your wishlist. The performance will be noticeably better

Nice build BUT... Whats the purpose of getting an aftermarket cooler when the the CPU can't be OC'd? Also that RAM is still Overpriced. You can get 8GB of 1600 for less than 70 bucks.

Cooler is always better. Kinda like in your build you have a z97 board with a CPU that can't be overclocked and a CPU cooler.

A couple of years ago I would have agreed with this completely. Now however, I think going for 8GB RAM is the way to go.

It is true that in gaming, you would not regularly go over 4GB in most games. However, games have started to appear where 4GB is really tight, and that will only get worse in the coming years. For example, if you play BF4 with a few tabs open in your browser, you are already getting close to or exceeding the 4GB.

Instead, I would be looking at getting 8GB RAM for less. I know the prices fluctuate, but that seems to be a little expensive.

OP, if you are wanting to game, you will want something better than that 750ti.
