Hi there, I am going about building a computer for the first time and I have a few questions. I have so far purchased most of the parts, and I think I got everything right. Here is what i have so far:

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=11-147-...

Video: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (This is something I purchased for another system, but could never use due to the psu being only 400 watts)

Mobo:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

OK, so my question is, will all of those parts be compatible with the motherboard I purchased?

Also, I was thinking of going with this ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... <--- would that be compatible with the motherboard and everything else? If not, could anyone suggest a good 4gb of ram that would be under $50 ?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated :)  Thanks!

those parts should be fine the 9600 will be a bottle neck though i have almost the exact same processor and my 9800 gt bottlenecks it.

i personally recommend

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

its Specially designed for intels but runs fine on AMD'S i have it paired with my phenom II x4 970 and its really nice and fast :) 

on a side note make sure you read up well before building it. i ruined the first cpu i ever got by rushing into building my pc.

Hi, and thank you for the reply. When I go here: http://www.asrock.com/mb/memory/870%20Extreme3.pdf I don;t see the ram you mentioned listed. Does the ram have to be listed there in order to work with the motherboard?


no it doesen't they usually have a message at the top of compatibily things saying there are to many to test so they can only show a few the ram will work fine. its not on the compatability list of my mobo either
