Default My First PC Build - Check Compatibility?

Hey guys, this is my first PC build from scratch. So before I order everything and make a hash of it, could I get a bit of advice/check the compatibility of the components? Thanks in advance.



CPU


2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i3 2120 3.3GHz Socket LGA1155 .


2nd Generation Intel® Core




Mobo


ASUS P8H61-M Pro Intel H61 (Socket 1155) Motherboard


ASUS P8H61-M Pro Intel H61 (Socket 1155) Motherboard | 90-MIBF30-G0EAY0DZ




GPU


The main GPU I have been looking at is the Radeon 6770. I would like
to keep the price of the GPU under £100 and so far this looks like one
of the best “bang for your buck” GPU’s out there in this price range.
I have looked at the 7770, but is it really worth the extra ££’s?


Asus AMD Radeon HD 6770 1024MB GDDR5


Asus AMD Radeon HD 6770 1024MB GDDR5 | EAH6770/DI/1GD5




Storage


I am looking at 120GB SSDs for this. This won’t be enough storage
space for too long, however I can easily put up with it for a while,
and buy a supplementary HDD when I have some spare change.


Decent value 120GB SSD:


OCZ OCZSSD2-1VTX120G 120 Gb Vertex Series SATA II 2.5 Inch SSD Drive


OCZ OCZSSD2-1VTX120G 120 Gb Vertex Series SATA II 2.5 Inch SSD Drive: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories




Memory


8gb or RAM (2x4GB)


Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit


Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit | CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9


As for the rest of it.


Optical drive I will pick up cheap, I barely use them so won’t be spending much on one.


PSU – Not quite sure about the PSU. A lot of different


Case – Again, I didn’t want to choose this until I knew the rest of the specs (don’t want to get a case too small or poorly fitting) although any advice on this would be well received.




If I’ve made any colossal errors in judgement, please let me know.


Thanks very much,


Stowski
