Chekcing compatibility

Hello,

I'm building my own home computer, mostly used for watching movies and surfing web. Also, I use many programs at the same time. I had one built about 4 years ago and now motherboard is gone. I was looking for just a motherboard, but now I think I might as well get the whole parts. I am looking for a mid range computer. Please be advise if the followings are compatible.

  1. Looks dandy ... needs optical ... Kingston 64GB (boot) SSD ???

  2. I DO NOT SEE a Hyper 212, either.
  3. An aftermarket CPU cooler is only necessary if you plan on overclocking.

    The WD drive you have selected is slower than a Samsung Spinpoint F3 (500 GB or 1 TB), Seagate 7200.12 (500 GB or 1 TB version), and the Western Digital WD1002FAEX 1 TB drive. The Samsung and Seagate drives are typically cheaper than the WD drive you selected, and the WD FAEX drive is more expensive, but is SATA3.

    OP, you may get more useful advice if you include some of the info asked for in the How to Ask for New Build Advice thread linked here in the forums.

    750 W is probably overkill unless you plan to CrossFire at some point, which doesn't seem likely, based on your stated usage. 550-650 W would probably be more appropriate. Other than that, the choice of PSU is a good one (80+, Active PFC, etc.).

    Amen, to "all that" ... ESPECIALLY THE PSU ... 600W would provide even enough overhead for 2X XFire.

  5. Thanks for all of your responses!
  6. The cooler comes with thermal paste and the motherboard comes with two SATA cables.
  7. ... uh ... yeah! ... I knew that! ... shhhhhure I did !

    If you get the SSD and the DVDR and a HDD ... then ... grab ONE.

    ... there is a guy named ShortStuff that says MX-2 is good stuff, tho ... just in case you want to use the (just fine .. good) paste that comes with, to brush your teeth.

    ... I wouldnt want you to get cavities.
