Hello, I'm just wondering if this Gaming PC Setup is fully compatible with the parts I've selected?
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
This topic has been moved from "Systems > Troubleshooting" to "Systems > Part List Opinions Wanted".
It's compatible, but it's really not good for the money. Go for something like this instead, it's a little bit more expensive but it's a lot better.

No after market cooler since you won't be overclocking anyway.
Different mobo for the new cpu.
A lot better ram for around the same price.
Better HDD for your needs for cheaper.
One of the more powerful cards on the market right now, isn't enthusiast level but you don't need that.
Power supply that'll save you some money on power.
You really don't need windows professional, stick with home premium.
Put in a bigger, cheaper monitor that's better for gaming as it has less of a delay. You're not going to need 2 monitors maybe ever, but I'm sure you can get by with one just now if it means your overall computer is going to be better.
Your motherboard has ethernet, so you don't need a wired adapter and if you need to connect to wifi I'd spend more on a wireless adapter than £7.
If you have any questions, just ask.
Edit: I didn't even see that you had a soundcard, you certainly don't need that either.
I've made this setup now, http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/dGfJqs
It's exactly the same but with a diffrent case, Will this be compatible?
Although I'd maybe go with this instead. Not much point in getting a mid tower case if you can't upgrade the system without replacing a lot of things imo.
Right, thanks man, Appreciate it!
