Hi I'm looking to get:

An amd fx-4 quad core 4100

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 AMD 990FX (Socket AM3+) DDR3 Motherboard

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-350-GI


Sapphire HD 6850 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-253-SP


BitFenix Shinobi "Core" USB3.0 Gaming Windowed Case - Black

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-048-BX


I currently have a 750 watt power supply. I am a novice a building pc's and i was wondering if all these parts were compatible and cost effective. Any help would be much appreciated.

XFX HD 6870 AMD Radeon Graphics Card - 1GB = money saved on mobo means a better GPU for £5 more than yours

BitFenix Survivor CORE = Cheaper and better cooled case, for quieter cooler operation

Total cost of mine from scan = £368 Total cost of yours from overclockers = £376, and dont forget mine has a better GPU, case and mobo...

Also what make is your PSU? and do you already have DDR3 ram ?
