$500 and below gamer PC, do these parts work together?

Budget Range: 0-400$ before rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, no adaptors (wireless adapters, routers)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com, Tigerdirect.com, anything site works really

Country of Origin: U.S.A.

Parts Preferences by brand or type: Would like to stick to reliable names, but would bend for a cheaper price

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe (if its compatible with the build)

Additional Comments: Mainly going to be playing RIFT with this PC, so it will need a good gpu, about 4-8 gbRAM and it also needs a dvd reader to read game discs.
(www.build-gaming-computers.com) I got most of my information from there, but am still unsure about a few things.

CPU - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7343096&csid=ITD&recordsPerPage=10&body=REVIEWS#tabs
RAM - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6613461&CatId=4534
GPU - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5566458&CatId=3669
HD - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=61389&CatId=139
DvD reader - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5744256&CatId=88
Case - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4580415&CatId=32

I don't know whether or not everything will fit in the case, and i'm unsure about the power supply needed.
Looks don't matter, i want a barebones system that kicks butt for a good price.

  1. Well first things first, all you selected was a motherboard without a CPU. Either you forgot to add it, or you got mixed up. Second, that GPU, it is 2 generations old, and is ok for maybe HTPC but not really gaming. Everything would fit in that case, but you did not include a power supply. And personal opinion I would shop at Newegg.
  2. Get this Combo deal
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.634248

    With this Graphics Card
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150534

    And you would have a great system for the price. It is a little over 500, so if you want under 500 you could go with this graphics card
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102898
    and be under 500 after the rebate
  3. I think this post has me covered
