Component compatibility checker Tags: New Build Systems Last response: January 14, 2011 6:11 PM in Systems Share sean611 January 14, 2011 5:46:17 PM Hi, i have decided on some computer parts and wanted to confirm if they are compatibile. Suggestions will be really appreciated. MOTHERBOARD ASUS Intel H55 Express 1156 Micro ATX Motherboard (PCI-E 2.0 x16, DDR3 2200(OC), SATA 3Gb/s, OnBoard VGA) CPU i3-540 Core i3 Dual-Core Processor - 3.06GHz, 4MB Cache, Socket 1156, 3 Year Warranty, Retail Boxed MEMORY Kingston ValueRAM Memory 1333Mz DDR3 Non-ECC DIMM HARD DRIVE Seagate OEM 500GB Barracuda 3.5 inch 7200.12 Internal Hard Disk Drive (7200RPM, SATA, 16MB Cache) CASE X-Case S002 Slim Destop or Tower case with 450 Watt Psu link... http://www.xcase.co.uk/X-Case-S002-Slim-Destop-p/case-x... I will probably install a standard dvd-rw drive. I am hoping that i can use the integrated graphic instead of buying a dedicated graphics card. Also, will i need a fan and heatsink for the processor, or does it come with one?

Also, you might want to get one of these to be on the safe-side, for when you put it together. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Component compatibility checker> Related ressources: ForumComponent compatibility checker ForumComputer component compatibility checker ForumComponent compatibility checker ForumComponent compatibility checker ForumComputer components compatibility checker ForumMy Final Components and Compatibility Checker ForumComputer compatibility checker ForumComputer compatibility checker ForumComputer Compatibility Checker ForumComputer compatability checker ForumHow to check compatibility checker of pc ForumMemory compatibility checker ForumNVIDIA GeForce gt 630m Forum[Solved] Newegg combo compatibility Forum[Solved] Questioning compatibility of my first build ForumCompatibility / Advice - new build ForumNew Sandy Bridge PC - < $1,000 ForumNew PC Compatibility ForumMotherboard and RAM compatibility ForumAmd geforce compatibility site:tomshardware com More resources Read discussions in other Systems categories Homebuilt New Build Prebuilt Cases Power Supplies RAM CyberPower !
