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

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?

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:

8gb or RAM (2x4GB)

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,
