Hi everyone, im new to the computer building world, never made one in my life. Anyway, im fed up of my dinosaur computer having to cool down after a youtube clip -_-.

So i decided to come ask you clever people if you could help me. Im on a budget of about £750 ($1220) for a computer including monitor. Do you think this is enough for a gaming computer?

i would love it if anyone could suggest components to buy with my budget for the highest gaming performance.

Also, if there are no suggestions, what is really important is if you could take the time to see if all my chosen components are compatible. I have no idea if they are, and dont want to find out they are not compatible halfway through building the thing :)

IMO, Liquid cooling is an unwarranted expense. Air cooling is more than sufficient and no concerns about leakage. If no OC'ing is involved the OEM cooler is fine.
SeaSonic-XFX-Corsair for the PSU.
Personally, I would use G.Skill-Mushkin -Corsair for the RAM.
When you receive the parts, thoroughly read the Mobo manual, familiarize yourself with all the hardware and bench test before assembling in the case.
