R9 270 + Intel Desktop Board a Good Idea?
Aug 2, 2014, 7:01 AM
I'm building a budget system and I know a guy who can get me an i3 3220 with an Intel Desktop Board for a good price(link
Accompanying the i3, I plan on getting a Sapphire R9 270(non x) and to sustain it - a Coolermaster Thunder 600W PSU(link
The reason I chose the non x version of the 270 is because it consumes less power...and the two are more or less the same card!
Just wondering if the above are compatible with each other and if the r9 270 will fit in the motherboard.
