Default First build parts compatible?

Hello I am new to Computer Forums! I am building my first PC soon and I would like a person with a lot of experience at building a PC to tell me if the parts I have decided on will work with each other and if I need to add a part. Please do not suggest that I change any parts unless they are incompatible or completely useless because the components I have chosen fit my needs and budget. I know some parts may seem complete overkill (ex: 1050w PSU) but I want upgradeability and lots of headroom. Some parts may also seem too low end (ex: Dell u2312hm display) but I do not care too much about that particular item's quality as long as it is decent. Thank you in advance

If you're using an SSD, there is no need to use a hybrid drive as your data storage. A 7200 RPM drive will suit you nicely.

Something like this.
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Plenty of speed for data storage, more capacity and $50 cheaper.

Also, some of your links are broken.

What I am doing is installing only the OS on the 60GB SSD and installing programs etc. on the 750GB Hybrid HDD. Would the programs not be faster with the hybrid than on the regular HDD? If you are suggesting I use SSD caching with the regular HDD wouldn't the OS and programs be a bit slower using that method than using the hybrid and SSD separately because the SSD is working to cache files? Sorry, I'm new to SSD and HDD combinations . If you are thinking of something else please explain! Thanks!

I have the fixed links but there is no 'edit' button anymore. Does anyone know what happened?

The 'classic' usage of an SSD and HDD combination is as follows.

SSD is used to save whatever you want loaded quickly on there: OS, games, certain programs.

HDD is then just used for data, pictures, videos etc. Stuff you don't necessarily access a lot.


Depends on what you want, if you do want the Hybrid, then, go for it

not a big fan of hybrid drives but it up to you i just think ssds are alot faster but dont last as long if your storing work and everything on a hybrid its not going to do anythink much faster as word files and that normaly ant that big just have more things to go wrong.

id go for a normal 7200rpm drive and the money you save maybe put to a bigger ssd

Ok I understand what you guys are saying! I would still rather just install the OS on the SSD and install programs and games on the hybrid. This is because I would like the OS to be the top priority and the games/programs to be second priority but still faster than a regular HDD and I won't have to worry about not having enough space on the SSD and which games to put on it. Thanks for your answers!
