Hi, I'm going to build a new entry-level gaming computer and i just bought an ATI Radeon HD 7770 2gb ddr5 in advance. I wanna know if this will work with the following build (which i still have yet to buy probably in a few days)

Build:
Processor: AMD A8-5600K Trinity 3.6GHz
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-F2A55M-DS2
RAM: Kingston HyperX 8GB 1600MHz DDR3
600w PSU.

Should I go with it or will there be any incompatibilities? help!

It'll work perfectly, it just won't be very powerful, but I'm guessing you already know that. :)

It should work well with the configuration you mentioned.

Instead of the A8 get a pentium G3258 and a compatible motherboard. This way you can upgrade to an i5 later on if you decide to get a 280x.

I agree with this 100%, although you will need an overclockable motherboard which could end up costing a lot more than you want to spend. Thank you for selecting my answer though, much appreciated :)

You don't need to overclock the G3258, but overclocking it does help the performance. A stock G3258 still outperforms an overclocked Athlon x4 750k. He could get a h81 motherboard and later on upgrade it to a locked i7 or i5.
