Final i5 homebuild. Just asking to make sure parts are compatible.

Hello everyone. I wanted to thank everyone from my previous thread for helping me out, especially the "jeep avatar" guy. Thanks man! But the thread is very long now and confusing. Anyway I have a final parts list and just want to be 100% sure all these parts are compatible - as I changed a few things due to combo deals.

EarthWatts 650 Watt ATX 12V Power Supply

Ok so as far as parts go everything will be through newegg except the last two parts the i5 at my local microcenter is only 149.99 and the PSU is also cheaper there.

With all parts + newegg shipping and microcenter taxes it comes to roughly $703.95 - I also got windows 7 full version for 29.99 through my student discount. So total build roughly $730.00.....


I just wanted to make sure this case and psu will work together - due to having changed the HDD and case from my previous build. Will a coolmaster case properly fit an Antec PSU?

Thanks guys, purchasing tomorrow as long as it's all in the clear.


And for reference if anyone needs a link to my previous post.

  5. Everything's compatible, however I noticed that in your other post you stated that you wished to crossfire in the future, but neither your mobo nor your psu would support it.

    Here's some that would

  6. I could be wrong, but should he not look into ram with a lower cas latency? (that set is 9) - I am wondering, no recommending.
  7. ^ Yes, if you don't mind a little price increase it would be better to go for some CL7
