AMD Athlon x4 Quad Core 3.2 Ghz + AMD Sapphire 7950

Hi, as the title suggests, I want these parts. The motherboard is a MSI FM2-A75MA-E35. Will these three parts be compatible? I also wonder, will a ASUS Xonar DGX Card fit on the motherboard together with the 7950? Will any of these parts be bottlenecked by eachother? If so, how much will it affect gameplay, for example gameplay in BF3, is it possible to play with smooth FPS on High or Ultra settings? I'm a new builder, and I'm looking forward to building a PC, and I want it to go as smooth as possible. Thanks beforehand.

  1. Best answer
    In BF3, your CPU probably won't bottleneck, but in more CPU intensive games, like Crysis 3 for exemple, your CPU will bottleneck your GPU. Aside from that, everything is compatible though. And yes, this sound card will fit your motherboard too.
    What PSU are you using ?
  2. I will be using a Thermaltake TR2 TR-600 600W ATX12V to supply my PC with power
  3. I'm sorry to say that, sir, but there's a lot of bad reviews about your PSU. A few people even reported that it started burning. That's not really what you want, I guess. Could I advice you to rather get this PSU, which is pretty cheap, and yet very reliable ?
