More about 550 build compatible good
  1. A little bit too much on PSU, downgrade to 500W and at least get an i3-3220?
  2. Your parts are compatible.

    Is this your full budget?

    I would recomend that you go for Ivy Bridge i3 at least... it will smoke out Pentium G860 in games.
  3. If money is tight at least go for the ivy bridge Pentium.
  4. And save some by getting the HDD, I'm using this kind right now. http://www.microcenter.com/product/400847/1TB_7,200_RPM_SATA_60Gb-s_35_Internal_Hard_Drive_DT01ACA100_-_Bare_Drive

    Good luck with your build

    Go with this build. It's quite a bit better all around.

    This is what I came up with while trying not to rely on mail in rebates. You can squeeze in a 7870 but I recommend stepping up to a 500w if you do that, and when I did that it came to around $570 after rebates with a corsair psu. The GPU includes the new bioshock and tomb raider games.
