Looks like it should work together, but why are you buying older tech? You should be able to get more modern parts for a similar price.

I build for friends and family, definitely not the same needs as I have myself. Budget is their primary factor unlike us gamers.

If you have something similar in price feel free to post and I can take a look at it however.

I'd think that you could get an AMD Athlon II X3 setup for the same price or less. I'm afraid something just came up and I don't have time for a full build at the moment, but I'll try to get back with a build in a bit.

I have a build of the AMD variant but he doesn't like AMD, even if it's cheaper. So yeah, kinda restricted to Intel.

If you get the time I'd like to see your build though and we can compare.

No combos, and I tended to pick quality over the cheapest part available. Could go lower on the mobos if you desire. Looks like your budget is around $240.

AMD:

CPU - Athlon II X3 440 3.0 GHz - $77 + $10 shipping
Mobo - MSI 880GM-E41 - $77 +$11.50 shipping, mATX
or
ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB3 - $110 +$11.50 shipping, mATX, USB 3.0 & SATA 6 Gb/s
RAM - G.Skill 1333 MHz CAS 9 4 GB kit - $87 + $10 shipping

~ $241 + 31.50 shipping (+43 for the ASUS mobo)

Intel:

CPU - i3-530 2.93 GHz - $122 + $10 shipping
Mobo - Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2H - $95 + $11.50 shipping, mATX
or
Gigabyte GA-H55N-USB3 - $110 + $11.50 shipping, mini ITX, USB 3.0
or
ASUS P7H55D-M EVO - $125 + $11.50 shipping, mATX, USB 3.0
RAM - G.Skill 1333 MHz CAS 9 4 GB kit - $87 + $10 shipping

~ $304 + $31.50 shipping (+30 for the ASUS mobo)

EDIT: Oh dang, I just noticed that you're using newegg.ca. I'll redo the links & prices. Links/prices fixed.
