I'm putting together a very low-end machine mostly for the purpose of playing WoW (which is still relatively undemanding) and doing other light duty multimedia stuff. The only thing I'm concerned about is making sure that the RAM, CPU, and mobo I chose from Newegg will play together nicely. The mobo is an open box deal, which will probably be out of stock today or tomorrow, so I'm hoping someone will throw in a qualified opinion ASAP. I hate to waste people's time with questions like this, but I did post here once before and got some excellent advice from users who had worked with the specific parts I was talking about. Thanks in advance!
Yes, that memory is on the QVL HERE if you want to check for yourself. I don't see that processor on the supported list, (that you can find here), to double check behind me bit I don't think it will work. This is the number (ADX250OCGMBOX) you are trying to match. Just find something on that list and you will be good with the other parts. This one will work for you and is the same price. AMD Athlon II X3 425 2.7GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Processor ADX425WFK32GI - OEM but you will need a heatsink. Like this one COOLER MASTER Vortex Plus RR-VTPS-28PK-R1 92mm Long life sleeve CPU Cooler for $27. You might can find something you like better for either the CPU or heatsink, these are just workable suggestions.
And you will also need a heatsink for randomhero1090 suggestion below. So $30 more for processor and another $30 for heatsink - what's your budget for this?
Thanks for the comments...I'm trying to do it dirt cheap, and because WoW is the most resource-intensive program being run on it, I want to keep it to a bare minimum. I definitely don't want to add a $30 cooling solution for a CPU that doesn't seem to deserve it, and I'm hoping to keep to $50-60 for the CPU, which is why I went with an AMD build.
