Feel free to select a motherboard of the 3, considering i don't know what is best for gaming you choose.


1) Are my parts Compatible with each other?
2) Is this a good Gaming Build?
3) is 850W PSU enough?
4) Are the motherboard(s) of the 3 compatible with 1600 dd3 ram and a 6core amd cpu?
Also feel free to add / change anything that might be better and helpful / useful.

^ For gaming, the 6-Core and 8GB of RAM would be of very little use...

This would be a very good gaming config -
X4 955 + ASUS 890GX

Mushkin 4GB DDR3

CM HAF 922 + CM Silent PRO 700W - It would easily suffice for 2x HD 6870s...

SSD for boot-

1TB HDD for data



Total - ~$930

Agreed with above, though if you are dead-set on the 8GB of ram, you'll want 2*4GB, not 4*2GB. It leaves room for expandability and will perform (negligably) better.
