Question by Romance: Gaming Computer DOES THIS ALL GO TOGETHER?
Does this all work together? Im pretty sure it does, but i just wanna know for sure before i buy it.

Motherboard – ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Processor – AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor

Ram – G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop

Graphics Card – EVGA 012-P3-1570-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP

Power Supply – Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC 430W ATX12V V2.2 Intel Core i7 Compliant Dual 80mm Fans Full Cable

My hard drive is 1TB and ill be using windows 7. I just wanna know if all of that stuff can work together.

This looks OK. For Power supply Unit you should actually calculate the power requirement and then add 10% to that as a safety margin. There are dozens of online calculators available. Try this.

Type in each and every component in you computer that consumes power.

    Mostly yes, I’d suggest a 500W or larger power supply though, with a GTX 570 as well as a 125W AMD processor as well as RAM @ 1600MHz… that’s going to be a fair bit of power consumption and will really push a 430W PSU.

    Lets talk one by one.
    First your Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth- My personal favorite. Just a great board for gaming setup.
    Then your processor: AMD Phenom? You can do better, really…
    Just check out for AMD Bulldozer Series processor.Your motherboard supports it. And I think you can get one as the same price as a Phenom, especially an AMD FX 4100. Its too is a Quad-Core processor @ 4.1 GHz.
    Now RAM: Its fine. Every game today demands atleast 4 GB of RAM. So that will be okay!
    Now Graphics: Why are you taking nVidia?
    Go for a Radeon HD series graphics.. They are better for AMD processors. They tune themselves according to AMD processors, performing better. Go for atleast Radeon HD 6950. Its in the same price point as GTX 670 and will perform better with AMD processor. Check it out!
    Now PSU: Just check that your PSU is compatible with your Graphics Card. Just check if your PSU has got two 75 watts 6 pin PCI-e power connectors.
    Try these suggestions. You will not regret!!!

    Everything looks great except for the power supply… There’s no way that 430w can handle that hardware. The CPU alone will draw 200w + the another 200w from the 570. If you overclock (which I assume you are, based on the mobo), the CPU power consumption will be even higher.

    I strongly recommend you grab a 650w+.

    Everything looks fine apart from the power supply and the fact that you have chosen AMD over Intel for your CPU.

    Get at least 500W’s from your PSU <— Never underestimate the importance of your PSU. It’s a damn big mistake. But yeh, a Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge CPU from Intel would MASSIVELY outperform that AMD CPU.
