Solved I need help with a Gaming PC Build; Compatibility Inquiry. Please Help ASAP Tags: Gaming Games Systems Components Compatibility Build Last response: July 15, 2014 11:54 AM in Systems Share Tiki47 July 14, 2014 5:59:06 PM I would like to build a Gaming PC as my old PC has stopped working and it's not worth paying for it to be repaired. I live in Ireland and I have found a website where I can get all of the needed components. I will leave all of the links below. I am happy with the price and I am ready to buy but I just want to be certain that it's compatible and will work for the games i wish to play as I know little about pc hardware. I want to play games such as Arma 3, DayZ Standalone, Rust, Garry's Mod, Counter Strike series, and Battlefield Hardline on medium settings with decent FPS. Those are all of the games i wish to be able to play, now onto the components. Please respond with all compatibility issues and if it cannot run games smoothly.

I think you need to spend a little more on the gpu, I am unfamiliar with the pricing though, Reply to schau314 m 0 l Tiki47 July 15, 2014 9:48:54 AM I took your advice and went for this: http://www.dabs.ie/products/msi-geforce-gtx-750-ti-1059... I really hope this is powerful enough because it's quite expensive. Reply to Tiki47 m 0 l Tiki47 July 15, 2014 11:12:33 AM Now I just need to be assured that everything is compatible.. Reply to Tiki47 m 0 l numanator a b 4 Gaming July 15, 2014 11:29:33 AM The Athalon X4 you chose is on the FM2 socket and the motherboard you picked is a AM3+ socket, they are not compatible. Reply to numanator m 0 l Tiki47 July 15, 2014 11:46:29 AM thanks I'll sort that out. I chose a new one: http://www.dabs.ie/products/msi-geforce-gtx-750-ti-1059... Is everything ok now? Reply to Tiki47 m 0 l Best solution numanator a b 4 Gaming July 15, 2014 11:51:40 AM The only (affordable) good option for CPU on the AM3+ socket is the Fx-6300 for 100 Euro. The FM2 socket doesn't have any upgrades from the athalon x4s so it is not a good investment if you want to upgrade using the same motherboard in the future. Reply to numanator Share Tiki47 July 15, 2014 11:54:12 AM How about this processor: http://www.dabs.ie/products/amd-fx-4350-am3--4-3ghz-12m...
