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:





Video: (This is something I purchased for another system, but could never use due to the psu being only 400 watts)


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: <--- 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

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: 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
