So I am trying to build a new desktop computer for myself (preferably for gaming). I researched and have found a Case, Motherboard, Video Card, Memory, Hard drive and CPU that seem to fit together. I just don't want to go ahead and just buy the parts (over $400) before knowing if they fit.
I have posted the links here (Newegg.com) and I want to know if these parts actually fit each other before I buy them.
2nd: Unless you don't plan on upgrading...I wouldn't suggest the case w/ the PSU...if u want a gaming machine, that means you want a good graphics card, which means higher PSU wattage...
oh...btw: I don't know if the PSU can support that graphics card
3rd: Add $20 to get the AMD Phenom II x4 955BE...It allows for overclocking (It's $110 w/ promo code)
4th: If you go with your case, the MoBo WILL NOT fit...Case is an ATX form factor...MoBo is Micro-ATX
5th: You don't have to get the graphics card to run the machine...the card will DRASTICALLY improve your gaming performance, but it's not needed due to the on-board video card on the MoBo you chose.
6th: RAM OVERKILL...you don't need 8GB...4 is more than enough
The Stock Heatsink and fan is included in retail boxes of the CPU, Unless you buy the OEM version of the CPU, there will be a heatsink and fan included (not as good as aftermarket ones, but it's enough until more money can get acquired to get a better one)
Since you are worried about the DVD drive, use this one, same price and free shipping: Sony Optiarc CD/DVD Burner Model AD-7260S-0B
