    Are you in europe\uk?

  2. RAM is not compatible. Here are other recommendations.

    1. Switch the 4350 with a 6350 (I made the same choice for the 4350 originally, but changed to the 6350 because it performs better, especially for gaming.
    2. Try and spring for a slightly better MoBo (such as this one
    3.Go for a 550W or 600W PSU so you have room to upgrade in the future.

    Very nice build, and very similar to what I am building currently. Good luck with it :)

    All components are compatible except

    1.the ram which is 1600mhz

    Your motherboard does not support ram more than 1333 in normal mode but it only supports 1600 in o.c. Mode
    U can chck in d link below the specs of ur mobo

    so you should change your mother board to

    MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

    2.if u want to overclock get a 550w cpu for safe side so that there is not extra load on ur psu n everything runs smooth

    If satisfied wid my ans close d post by choosing best ans
