I've decided to start building a computer and I understand how the parts work but I really have no clue how compatability is. These are my parts that I'm unsure of. Of course the SSD, HDD, OS AND other stuff is fine.
Intel core i5-2500k quad-core
NVIDIA GTX 760 2GB
ASUS M5A97 ATX motherboard
Corsair Vengeance 8GB
And a 500w power supply.
Compatibility is basically like putting a square in the square hole, triangle in a triangle etc. Not trying to insult you, but the concept stands.
You do have a compatibility issue. You have an Intel i5-2500k with an AMD M5A97 AM3+ motherboard. Each CPU has a specific socket type (square). The i5-2500k has an 1155 socket. The AMD motherboard you have supports AM3+ CPUs (pentagon). You will need to get an 1155 socket motherboard in order to use that CPU.
i agree about the psu, but everytime i post a build with a cheap psu, this one particular person always says "NO NO dont buy this, its a crap psu that will fry your computer" lol i know he is exaggerating, but if you arent using the full capacity of a psu, you really dont need high quality.
