Will these components work together?

Hey guys, I'm currently looking to upgrade from my old gaming pc that's over 4 years old now.

I was wondering will these components work together and what do you guys think of them?

Case: Graphite Series™ 760T Arctic White (link)
GPU: Sapphire Radeon R9 295 X2 (link) or the MSI Radeon R9 295 X2 (link)
CPU: AMD FX-9370 (link) of the FX-8350 (link)
Mobo: Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z (link)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro Series Red 16GB 2400 (link)
PSU: Corsair AX-1200i 1200W (link) or the Corsair HX1000i 1000W (link)
SSD (for windows): Corsair 240GB Neutron Series (link)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i (link)

Also is there any real difference between the Sapphire and the MSI cards?

Thanks

Owain

That will be an epic gaming rig gamer dude. You may like I did have to settle for a little lower clock on the 2400mhz ram it will depend on the CPU and mobo but whatever speed it settles into and like it will be "Snappy" !

I like my NZXT Kraken X60 better then my H100i as the radiator is thicker but again it's like splitting hairs. Just know that the case shows it takes the H110i which is a 280mm and that's what I'd go with!

I have never used Sapphire GPU's but I have mostly MSI's, XFX's and Diamonds and the MSI's are great GPU's. Both brands get good ratings and both should perform very close to equal so it could boil down to pricing and availability.

Hehe thanks man!

I think the MSI will be the best option, it's around £230 cheaper.
And the H110i looks quite good, time for me to watch some reviews haha

And if you like the H110 then look into the X60 Kraken !

Temps are very controlled and of course depends on ambient air temp but at the moment I average mid to high 30's and under loads it climbs to mid to high 40's but it's coming into winter here and the summers are a completely different story.

Why get one of the fastest dual GPUs ever made, and then cripple it with an AMD cpu who'd performance could be matched or exceeded by almost any $100 i3 model?

Any $1000+ gpu pretty much screams a socket 1150 Z97 is required....
