Gaming PC configuration - will it fit together?

by hudrisko / June 22, 2011 6:35 AM PDT

Hello,
my first post:I'd like to buy new gaming PC, my budget is limited and so far I came up with this config:

monitor: 24" BenQ G2420HD
FAN: CoolerMaster Hyper 212+
GPU: MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr III Power Edition/OC
RAM: CORSAIR 4GB KIT DDR3 1600MHz CL8 XMS3 XMP
CASE: FRACTAL Define R3 Black Pearl
POWER: SEASONIC X-560KM Gold
CPU: INTEL Core i5-2500K
DVD: SAMSUNG SH-S222A
HDD: SAMSUNG SpinPoint F3 1000GB
MTB: GIGABYTE P67A-UD3-B3

I'd like to ask you for advice if this config is the best power/value in its category, if the components fit together and into the PC case as well.
The PC is dedicated for gaming and possible overclocking.

Many thanks for help.
