Iv already ordered everything but feel free to correct me on anything that's miscompatible, So is everything compatible? AND Will my 500 Watt PSU Be enough to power this Rig? Thank you in advance

  1. You can save money by buying an e5200 and OC'ing it to about 3ghz.
    The p45 is a nice mobo..I think that everything is compatible
    Not sure about the power issue, maybe someone else can help you
  2. Alright well that leaves 1 question. Is the PSU enough power for this PC? 500 Watt, 70 Percent efficiency?
  3. Next time write the names of the parts, don't force people to click 5 links to see what you're talking about. It's also more productive to ask first and buy later. :kaola:

    GA-EP45-UD3R - good choice, but no future proofing (no SLI, no Crossfire)

    Cooler Master PSU - I wouldn't buy it, but since you already have it youc an use it. Yes it's powerful enough. It has 30A combined on 12V and the minimum recommended is 26.

    Yes, all compatible. The 9800GT will fit in the NZXT Apollo, the E8400 retail comes with a cooler, etc.
  4. alright awesome, Just another question My motherboard has 4 RAM Slots and 2 are red and 2 of them are yellow. I have 2 sticks of ram, So do i put both sticks in the red slots or Put 1 in the yellow slot and 1 in the red slot? or does it not matter.
  5. Put the ram in the same color slots, this will run them in dual channel.

    Reading your motherboard owners manual will do you wonders.
