Those are not compatible with each other. I am assuming you have 550$ to spend? Can you jump to 600?

And I would like to point out your build...plz don't be piss off if I am too critical

1. A6-5400K only pair w/ FM2 mobo, so your 780G mobo is not compatible w/ A6-5400K

2. DDR2 RAM is out of date, only old rigs upgrade will use such RAM (And only 2GB RAM? u'll kill yourself while finding out your rig is so slow because of lacking memory).

3. And it seems that A6-5400K w/ an IGP but u choose HD 7770 as your gfx, u'll waste precious money on a HD 8470D which u'll never use.

Still, we wanna hear what u'r thinking (What u'll us this rig for? for gaming? for just everyday use...)and your exact budget.

One more question if I were to switch out the corsair mid tower case for the Rosewill challenger I had listed before would the parts be able to be set aim the challenger case or do I need the corsair case for the parts to fit in?
