I'm building my first pc and I need help with determining the compatibility of some parts.

Are these parts compatible?

More about building determining compatibility parts
  1. Mazooni is right.

    Out of curiosity, what is the purpose of the build? The titan has been beaten by cheaper cards in gaming and a professional workstation card would be better fitting for most workstations.
  2. Yeh it all seems fine, happy gaming. :)

    The parts you chose are compatible and the processors are the same. The different retailers just put a slightly different name in the title. All 3930k's are sandy bridge-e


    I've become a bit concerned after reading this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/SingleProductReview.aspx?reviewid=3312598
    The RAM that I'll be getting uses 1866MHz and 1.5V. Will this cause any problems?
  4. not likely, to be safe like me use 1600MHz at 1.5V and cas latency 7

    Not sure what happened to the price, I picked it up for $88 just over a month ago

    I'm going to be using it for making 3D models and animations in a program called Blender. I've done a bit of research and I found that the Titan is one of the best cards for handling large texture maps, large scenes, and animations.

    Sounds like a smart choice then, the pricey titan is kind of a niche item now.
    If only they made a 6gig 780 ti... /:

    Do I also have to look for another motherboard?
    The one I picked uses 1866MHz.
  8. The motherboard is compatible.

    The problem that you linked to earlier is the intel memory controller. Alot of people overclock it to 1866 and its fine. It just is if something does go wrong like what happened to the guy you linked, the warrenty has been voided by the overclock. He likely had an inferior board or something. You should be fine

    So should I stick with this: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4355829
    Or should I pick a different one?
  10. Its a good kit. I'm using lower latency Ram at 1600 to keep my rig fast without having to OC.
    heres a 32gb set, but its $320

    The kit you have selected already will work great though.
  11. Thanks for the help! It made building my first pc seem less daunting.
  12. your welcome! Best of luck with your build :)
