Hello, Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, im new here but im looking to build a computer myself and was wondering if these parts are compatible with each other as i have never done this before and would like a computer to play GTA 4, BFBC 2 and so on. Thanks for any help!!
If you're going to build an AMD system, I would strongly suggest you get a socket AM3+ board with a 900-series chipset. It will support a possibly Bulldozer upgrade, and have current ports and connectors, like USB3 and SATA 6 Gb/s.
Edit: I assume you will also have a standard HDD in this system? Something like a Spinpoint F3 or Seagate Barracuda should be fairly inexpensive.
You may find 64GB to be a bit small. If your budget can stand it, 120GB-128GB or more would let you load a lot more games/apps on it, and be faster as well.
thanks for the help. the board and CPU come together as a bundle. and yes i would get a HDD as well and just use the SSD for gaming. would that board hold me back as far as upgrading will go down the line? only asking because i'd much prefer a bundle where the CPU and mobo come ready to install rather than doing it completely from scratch.
Mobos are made to standard form factors, like ATX; so any ATX case should accept it. Your chosen GPU is not especially long, so you probably don't need to worry about it brushing up against the hard drive cage.
