Planning to get a 6850 later, will live with onboard graphics for now. Mostly word processing and internet use for now.

Trying to keep it around $500 not including graphics card.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions! Just wanted to make sure I didn't forget anything or buy incompatible parts.

Or should I go with this RAM?

More about first build order compatible
  1. I'd get just 4 GB of RAM. A.Data, Mushkin or G.Skill are around $45 for 2x2GB.
  2. If u are staying near a Microcenter and if USB/SATA 3.0 is not a deal breaker

    $170: 965BE + MSI 785G-E53

    Items off Egg $213

    $383 core build


    60GB SSD Sandforce based $99AR

    Scythe SCMG-2100 MUGEN-2 Rev.B 5 Heat Pipes CPU Cooler $29 WITH PROMO CODE

    $511AR with all optionals in
  3. Yes everything is compatible to answer your question.

    My only note is that if you plan to oc, or run SLI//crossfire It will be hard to fit a good aftermarket cooler over cpu, or fitting 2 Graphics card on a board that small.

    I have a 6850 and 2 of them are definitely wider than those pcie slots
