Will these components work together? Tags: Components Last response: June 22, 2011 1:52 AM in Components Share cnel92 June 21, 2011 9:37:08 PM I'm wanting to build a nice gaming PC, but have never bought computer parts before, and am not real sure if they are compatible. Here is a list of the parts I've been looking at: RAIDMAX SMILODON Extreme Black ATX-612WEB 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Cas ASUS M5A88-V EVO AM3+ AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (CMPSU-750HX) 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - OEM Western Digital Caviar Black WD5002AALX 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive ASUS EAH6950 DCII/2DI4S/1GD5 - AMD Radeon HD 6950 - GDDR5 1 GB Video Card Are all these parts compatible with each other? I plan on waiting for the new AMD bulldozer processor. And also, are there are any better choices that are cheaper? Thanks in advance!

Prices may change in the time period we have to wait for the bulldozer! geofelt June 22, 2011 1:01:07 AM Do you have any idea when bulldozer will arrive, it's clock speed, it's efficiency per clock. nomber of threads, or it's price? I have seen no leaked benchmarks yet. It looks like amd is having problems with performance, and launch will be delayed. http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20110601180002... Selecting parts is way premature, and not a great idea, since the economics will change from month to month. The 6950 graphics card will be very happy with a sandy bridge such as a 2100, let alone a 2500K. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
