    Yes... they are all compatable with each other (though better options can be found on RAM, Hard Drive & CPU).

    What is the rest of your build... PSU, Case, GPU & CPU Cooling?
  2. This topic has been moved from the section CPU & Components to section Systems by Mousemonkey
  3. Changes to start:
    1) HSF: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

    2) HDD: Seagate 7200.12 500GB

    3) RAM: We'll leave the same for now, as Cas9 isn't a show stopper.

    4) PSU: This is one of the areas you don't want to skimp on quality for price. I would go with this one for a single card setup... Corsair CMPSU-550VX

    5) CPU & GPU: They are actually some what balanced to a point. If budget permits, I highly recommend a higher level GPU to at least a GTS 450 or ATI 5770. For your CPU, I would recommend the Phenom II X4 955 though for the better CPU.
  4. But if I unlock the other two cores (if unlockable) wouldn't it pretty much be a 955?
  5. And as you can tell i am on a very tight budget, so i am trying to get the best bang for the buck
  6. And if it doesn't unlock?
  7. I'll overclock it and do with what I have.
