Feedback and advice on my first gaming PC build.

Hello!I'm totally new to this so please if you could be as clear as possible when it comes to components because there is a good chance I will have no idea what you're talking about :D

I have decided to go ahead and assemble my first ever gaming PC. After researching parts and components I have decided to go with these:

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/f8qTpg

From what I have gathered, these components are all compatible with each other, but I decided to get a second opinion from this wonderful community before I purchase any parts, (except for the case - that has already been bought) in case there are some parts I could change for increased performance etc.

I have an optical drive at home that I can use, so I didn't include it in the list.

The reason I went with a 850w Corsair PSU is because somewhere down the line I'd like to add another GTX780 in SLI.

Any advice and feedback is most welcome. Thank you in advance!

A few suggestions:

There is cheaper ram out there, look into finding a cheaper kit. Also since this is a gaming build, I'd stick with 8gb, as 16gb will not help you.

Switch the 780 for a 290, you get better performance and more ram for less money. Look into the powercolor pcs+, xfx double dissipation, and sapphire tri-x.

The PSU is pretty overpriced because it's platinum. Look into a cheaper full mod gold or silver instead as you'll save a good deal of money from the change. I think the EVGA Supernova G2 would be one decent option.

Awesome, thanks for the advice! The reason I went with 16GB ram is because I do 3D modelling sometimes and it isn't significantly more expensive :)

I would definitely like to change the PSU because that's a bit expensive, so I will look into that, thanks!

But main question is: this should all work fine together? As in, all compatible and so on? :)

Thank you for a quick response!

no worries! thanks for the info :) do you know if all the other components should be working fine together? Like the mobo with gtx 780 and the processor and ram and so on? Cause I can decide on the parts, but don't want to buy anything that isn't going to work together 100% :)

thanks dude!

Sorry. Yes, this build will be mainly used for gaming and 3D modelling / rendering.
