Not sure if all these parts are compatible for my new build plz help!

Alright so I am a first time builder and I would like to know if the parts that I picked out are all compatible, also I'm building this computer pretty much for WoW and would like to know if you think it will run it alright or not? Any advice would be helpful, and like I said just want a third party to look at everything and check it out thanks! Mind you the case/mouse/keyboard I already have that's why they are not listed :)

Here are my components:




Graphics Card:

Optical Drive:




CPU Fan/Heatsink:

And again, thank you for all your help, hope to hear back! :D

    First off yeah they are compatible but u can get much better components.

    MOBO+WIN: GIGABYTE GA-880GMA-UD2H AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 + Windows 7 Home 64bit
    GPU: XFX HD-687A-ZNFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit DDR5
    PSU: Antec BP550 Plus 550W Modular 80+

    Mobo is AMD 880 chipset based with USB 3.0 etc. AMD 6870 GPU is new and is better then 5850. Samsung F3 HDD is better in performance. Antec 550w is a quality brand in PSU and no compromises in PSU department should be made. PSU is also 80+ certified and is modular.
  2. You don't think that the Gigabyte Micro ATX MoBo, is to small for that GPU?

    As far as the PSU goes, I found one that's even better I believe

    Thanks for showing me that 6000 series GPU can't believe I missed it -.-

    And swapped out my hdd for the one you recommended, based on consumer reviews ty for that as well!

    But yeah, I would think that the GPU would take up quite some space on that mobo, considering I also have to throw a heatsink/fan onto the processor, which are usually quite bulky :'(
  3. Not at all, Mobo being mATX dont mean its gona struggle with bigger GPU, it only dont have second pci-e or many pci slots, dats y its size is smaller then ATX. Skip the Roswill PSU and get ANTEC 550w, which is a reliable brand and their PSU is 80+ efficient and modular as well.

    By the way 6870 card is about 10-11 inches so check ur case whether it can handle it otherwise u have to make some modifications for it.
