    How well will these components work together?

    So I'm not too great when it comes to building PCs and am deciding to give it a shot.

    How well will the following components work together?;
    - Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU
    - Asus P8Z77-V Motherboard
    - GTX 480

    Thanks, and if there's any issues feel free to recommend other similarly priced products

    Why get that 1 bar heater for your case (the GTX 480) that uses nearly 400W of power when you could get better performance with much less heat production and power consumption? How much are you paying for the graphics card?

    £160.14 ($256.72)

    As far as I can tell, that card is not going to use 400W on its own. True its power consumption is high but it's much cheaper than any equivalent performance cards as far as I can tell. (UK here).

    But hey, I don't really know at the end of the day. Definitely no expert!

    Sure, sounds like a great system! Don't let anybody tell you the GTX is "Bad" or whatever, sure they get hot, and consume some power, but its not as bad as people say they are. Just get a good case to keep it cool.
