Hello,
I was wondering it my msi gtx 460 is compatible with this motherboard, ASUS P8P67 LE B3

Yes it is definitely compatible. I think that almost all commercial motherboards have atleast 1 PCIExpress x16 slot on them nowadays. In this case it is the dark blue long expansion slot, just below the I/O panel. There is another PCIExpress slot on that motherboard, and you could Crossfire two Radeon cards, but I wouldn't recommend it because the bottom slot only goes at 4x speed, whereas the top slot goes at 16x speed.

Yes it is compatible.

Is your power supply unit capable of powering your system with that graphics card?

Please post the make and model number of your power supply unit.

Wow thank you so much for the very quick reply!

I was wondering if you can review my build and see if there's anything wrong with my build. I am new at building computers and this is my first one.

a. CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Processor with 6 MB Cache, 3.30 GHz for Socket LGA1155 - Unlocked Boxed (considering)
b. Mobo: ASUS P8P67 LE B3 (considering)
c. GPU: MSI N460GTX 768MB [newegg.com] (HAVE)
d. Hard drive: Samsung SATA2 7200rpm 32MB [superbiiz.com] (HAVE)
e. Ram: 8GB (2x4GB) G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1600 PC3 12800 Desktop Memory [newegg.com] (HAVE)
f. PSU: Diablotek 650-Watt ATX Power Supply PHD650 (considering)
g. Case: Thermaltake V9 BlacX Edition Gaming Chassis Mid Tower Steel Computer Case VM400M1W2Z (Black)
g(i). CPU Cooler: Corsair A50 (HAVE)
h: Optic (CD/DVD/Blu-ray): Any suggestions for this one?

The motherboard is fine if you're never intending to run an SLI configuration. The two PCIe x16 slots run at x16/x4 mode only.

Is the RAM the F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM 8-8-8-24 1.5V model or the F3-12800CL7D-8GBXH 7-8-7-24 1.6V model? Just curious as both models should work fine.

I highly suggest that you reconsider your PSU choice. HardOCP's test review conclusion "It kind of goes without saying that the Diablotek PHD650 is a giant steaming pile of crap. The PHD650 is a bad 300 watt power supply, let alone a "650 watt" power supply. The PHD650 is maybe a 300 watt power supply that had a 650 watt label slapped on it and it is just a total rip off on any terms."

For the PSU consider brands such as Antec, Corsair, Enermax, Seasonic, XFX. For a single graphics card a 450 Watt unit from one of these brands should sufficient. If you intend on running an SLI rig with two GeForce GTX 460 graphics cards then you'll need at least a 600 Watt or more unit from one of these brands. What is your budget for this PSU?

Are you looking for a drive that can burn Blu-Ray discs or only one that can read Blu-Ray discs? What is your budget for this drive?

please dont skimp on the psu, get a good brand with dual 12v rails. i got the antec modular 550 watt it was 65$ at newegg and it's more than enough, i have almost the exact system as the items you are considering... please get 1.5v ram, p67 chipsets like that voltage better...

My total budget for everything I do not have yet is about 400-600, and blue ray is not on the must-have list for now.

I am hoping for as cheap as possible haha.

As for the ram: I got this one

How much Wattage should I get? I have heard 650W is the minimum I should have yet I am not sure. Can you guys direct me to a perfect one for the system that you guys may have used before?

I am thinking about this xfx one

Again, thank you tom's hardware community for giving me great help!

Since you'll only be running with a single GeForce GTX 460 graphics card:

Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W for $59.99

For just a CD / DVD Burner:

ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS for $17.99

Is 500 wattage okay? I checked the minimum power supply I should get on tigerdirect and it says that I need at least 480 wattage.

Is it possible it can go over that?

Of course an Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green is OK. In fact it's better than OK.

nVIDIA states a minimum recommended PSU of 450 Watts or more for the GeForce GTX 460.

You're going to be fine with a quality 500w power supply. My system is running an i5-2500k and and HD 6850 and at peak its pulling less than 200w.

Power supply requirements are highly overrated to compensate for the abundance of crappy, inefficient PSUs on the market.

500w is plenty if you stick with a quality unit.
