SAPPHIRE 100283L Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL - Retail

ASUS P7P55D LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Quad-Core Processor, 2.40 GHz, 8M L2 Cache, LGA 775

and 750watt power supply COMPATIBLE?

Sorry for such a noob question. I'm just trying to double check before I buy. I already have the power supply and the processor. I am looking to run windows 7 32bit. If anyone wants to comment on whether I should run Windows 7 64 bit please do. I am looking to run World of Warcraft at it's peak. I have a nice 36" widescreen HDTV as my monitor. Thanks ;)

No, the Q6600 is not compatible with the rest of the parts. Edit your post to match the form in my sig, and we'll be able to help you out more.

Hello and welcome to the forums. As jbakerlent stated LGA or Land Grid Array ( basically the pins on the motherboard your processor plugs into ) 1156 and 775 are NOT compatible. LGA 1156 is a new format and LGA 775 is several years old and basically *dead* ( no new chips being developed for it ).
Stick with the newer faster LGA 1156 and get either a Core i5 7xx series or a Core i7 8xx series chip.

Go with 64bit windows 7. The 32 bit will not make full use of the full 4gb or RAM and 64 bit will. I have run the 64 bit since May and have had very few issues. Really the only problem I had was with 64 bit Internet Explorer but it should include both the 32 and 64 bit versions.

Is this your first build? If so make sure you have a good guide,have fun and good luck!
