PC Compatibility Check

Hello, I'm new to PC gaming, and I need a quick compatibility check before I buy all of the components. Any advice is also appreciated. Budget < $1000 and overclocking is not necessary. I'm not looking for a high end rig. Just a build that will be able to play anything at medium settings or lower at a decent frame rate.

  1. Any reason you're buying from Tigerdirect, instead of Newegg/Amazon? Newegg's prices are usually better, and Amazon generally has free shipping on a lot of their cases.

    It will all work together, but if you're not OCing, don't bother with the H50. It's like buying an expensive stock cooler. If you really want an aftermarket cooler, get the Cooler Master Hyper 212+; it's almost half the price of the H50 with better performance.
  2. I chose Tigerdirect just because it was recommended to me by my friend. I'll be sure to check newegg and amazon to cmpare prices. Thanks for the cooling fan advice. Appreciate it.
  3. Most people have very bad experiences with Tigerdirect (myself included), and their prices aren't very competitive compared with Newegg's.
