Hi im John im new at the forums and im resuing my old machine to make a gaming rig
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Until january 10
BUDGET RANGE: 530€ but i don´t want to change the config´too much just to see if all fits together well
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT:
composing in fruity loops , working the photoshop , word ,etc.. , surfing the net , heavy gaming
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Drive- Write master x22 drive HDD- Hitachi Sata II 7200 RPM Sata II Case- Sucky case with one single 80 mm fan and an air exit( i don´t know the model)

I can´t crossfire with this mobo so no...
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1280x1024
QUESTIONS: 1- Is the system compatible?
2- Will the Psu hold up with such a demanding system , will i have performance problems of some sort?
3- Do i need to worry about the temps of this sytem?Since my case will do a lousy joob keeping it cool ... How well do the stock collers of the CPU and GPU( of course) hold up?
The memories are configured for intel processor so that won´t be a smart choice maybe , i have to find ones fitting to my cpu..
1.yes this system is compatible
2. the psu will hold up very nicely, but a little added wattage couldn't hurt, so it will work, but you could get a slighly bigger one.
3.you might want to buy a extra 120mm fan, but stock should work fine.
I will chage the rams to OCZ PC3-12800 Black Edition Ready CL8 Dual Channel , for an additional 10 euros i get lower frequency rams that are especificly built for my CPU
Somedays after purchasing the computer i will buy an additional 120 mm fan as you have recommended
