Hi everyone

Just about to try to build be first PC, and hoped you could advise me if all the components are compatible? And if you have any recommendations.

I like to do some gaming, but the main thing I need from my computer for it to be very fast and be able to access a very big database in a split second for information. I was planning on putting the OS in one of the SSD and the database on the other. Please see a list of the components below:

Also can you tell me if I definitely need a separate sound card or is there one built into the motherboard that will suffice for basic use?

And one more thing, and I realise this might be a difficult question to answer to a complete novice like me, but how would I set up the SSD in a RAID 0?

Thanks for you help.

rae10000,

Welcome to HTG.

Is a Good Build. :) :)

Suggest you change mechanical HHD to this.

Also change Operating System to Windows 8 x64 Pro.
Can run just like Windows 7 in desktop mode if you like.

I would go for FULL Tower Case for the Same money.

Don't forget Mounting Brackets for SSDs.

The Manual that ships with the Mother Board contains instructions on how to setup Raid Arrays.
