Hey, I'm tired of my crappy old laptop so I've decided to make my own computer.
I've read all about what I'm going to have to do, and about money troubles and such, but I have a big enough budget. Im just slightly confused on if it will all fit...

Please could someone tell me if these would all fit together?

Intel Core i5 3.4 GHz Processor - 100£
ASUS P8Z77-V - motherboard - ATX - LGA1155 Socket - Z77 - LGA1155 Socket - 80£

ASUS GT640-2GD3 Graphics card - 2 GB - DDR3 SDRAM - 50£

I would only recommend it when overclocking, but even when your not overclocking it will keep your system nice and cool ( They cost 100-120 dollars )

i3s aren't very good. Personally I would use an AMD proccessor instead if you were going for a i3. http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/ I personally found this very helpful when building computers, as well as my friends.

Yeah, I agree with XPownageXer555, you should use i5 instead of i3. The rest is all wierd stuff to me.

I would upgrade the cpu but it seems to work together. If I were you I would post it on the newegg forums too. Did you get an hdd? I would recommend that too. The OP will take up a lot of space on the ssd, so I would suggest a bigger hard drive. That is if you didn't have one already

Seems good to me but if I were you I would switch out the i3 Processor and upgrade to an i5 because most gamer's have 4 cores and minecraft would not have as many lag spikes.

It all seems to fit together, I'm a bit short on time at the minute otherwise I'd look each part up like Splammy and we could both confirm for you.

The only thing I would suggest checking is the size of the case in relation to the motherboard. Don't get an ATX board and a M-ATX case lol

----- This power supply should do you.

So far the parts all seem fairly compatible but I will look into it further, so don't shoot straight away and spend, i'm going to check it out with a few friends/colleagues. And maybe make some recommendations for you.
