I am building my first Gaming PC and need some help checking if all the parts are compatible with each other.

CPU: INTEL Core i5 Ivy Bridge 3570k - 3.4 GHz - 6 MB

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7870 OEM - 2 GB

HDD: SEAGATE Barracuda 3.5" internal hard drive - 1 TB

Optical Drive: LG GH24NS90 24x DVD Rewriter

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz

Case: CiT Vantage Case Black

PSU:Corsair 500W Builder Series CX 80+ Bronze ATX Power Supply

I plan to play games like Battlefield 3 and Skyrim on ultra, will this build run them on their highest settings?

I am going to overclock in the future.

Advice is welcome

Welcome to HTG.

The Mother Board is out dated with PCI slots and also has poor ratings.

The Build needs a 750 Continuous Watt Power Supply.

Research a bit more and post your changes.
