I'm only looking for a new CPU, PSU, RAM, and MOBO. Are these parts all compatible? Should I be looking at something cheaper?

I actually created this thread for my friend, he's gone to the bank right now but from what I know he already has a case, a gpu on the way and a hard drive.

He just wants to run Counter-Strike:Source and BC2 with good fps.

Hmm. I'm not 100% sure at the moment but I'll get back to you as soon as he comes online.

I'm assuming it's PCI-E.

yes i know. to keep him down around $400 dollars. The dual core i5 will work on that mobo. You can to disable the onboard graphics. If he can spare another $25 dollars then up it to the i5 750 for around $450 total
