Solved Building a $540 system, need help making sure everything is compatible. Tags: Cases Compatibility Systems Last response: August 29, 2013 11:35 PM in Systems Share Dephinix August 29, 2013 11:00:02 PM Hoping to purchase at least the case and PSU by Saturday for rebates, if confirmed by then, all parts. $540 is the budget after tax, and I believe I rang out at $440 with shipping. Will be used for moderate gaming, friend wants to play PSO2 and maybe TERA. HDD, CD Drive, mouse, keyboard, monitor, are already acquired. I'm hoping I didn't forget anything. Using onboard audio. Making this system in Southern California, site preference is non-existent, but I'm pretty sure I covered all the parts we need, just want to make sure everything will work together. I would like to stay with Intel, and no overclocking for now. I advised he should crossfire later, as the board appears prepped for that. If anyone, and multiple people, can check this out and make sure I didn't hiccup, it would be much appreciated.

It has a much faster CPU and slightly better GPU.
