Will all components work in this gaming build?

Hello,

My concern is - will all the parts work in this build?

1) Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 4GB DDR3 CL9 KIT OF 2 CML4GX3M2A1600C9B 1 x 31.62 Ls = 31.62 Ls
2) D-Link DWA-140/D1 Wireless N USB Adapter 1 x 6.75 Ls = 6.75 Ls
3) Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 1 x 34.33 Ls = 34.33 Ls
4) Intel® Pentium® Dual Core G2030 3.0GHz 3MB LGA1155 BX80637G2030SR163 1 x 35.66 Ls = 35.66 Ls
5) OCZ ATX 2.2 CoreXStream 500W 1 x 25.95 Ls = 25.95 Ls
6) Samsung DVDRW 24X SATA Black SH-224DB/BEBE 1 x 9.85 Ls = 9.85 Ls
7) Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon HD7770 1GB GDDR5 PCIE 11201-17-20G 1 x 61.65 Ls = 61.65 Ls
8) Seagate BARRACUDA 7200 1TB SATA 64MB ST1000DM003 1 x 37.55 Ls = 37.55 Ls

Total 243 LVL = 466 $

Case will be reused.
I know that my CPU doesnt support 1600 MHz RAM, but it will clock it down to 1333Mhz. Am i right? I am thinking of upgrading in future to some i5 CPU.

Any other concern about this build? Will the PSU be ok? Maybe i can downgrade some parts to cheaper not loosing in gaming performance (will be gaming on 1600*1050 monitor)?

  1. Best answer
    PSU is OK not great and the ram will down clock. Everything is compatible and should do OK at your resolution.
  2. another thing which i didnt mention - the CPU G2030 is not in the Mobo supported CPUs list. But i saw that there are other ivy bridge CPUs in the list (some i5 and i7) and decided that it should be ok?

    What do you think?
  3. It is most likely that they have not updated the list, I am presuming that you are talking about the rev 2.0 which has G2020 on their list.
  4. hmm - i checked the rev 1.0. But the retailer dosn't specify which revision it is. Probably need to call them ...

    (Its in Latvian ...)
  5. Most likely it is rev 2 since the first BIOS for it was in Sept 2011 unlikely that the retailer has a rev 1 board that long in stock.
  6. Hope so :) thx for help
