Hi, I was wondering if these parts were compatible, I want to spend around 800-1000 if you know of any items that are cheaper but are just as good, let me know!!

Motherboard- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Heatsink- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Power Supply- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Optical Drive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm not getting a hard drive right now because of the shortage, I have a spare one in the computer I have now. If I'm missing any parts could you let me know and recommend what you think I should buy? Thank You!!

Is there a reason why? Just wondering.


Its slightly faster (1600mhz vs 1333mhz) but in real world scenarios this will make no difference at all.
Heres a better GPU though, its a 6870, cost the same but delivers better performance than the 460:

I'd really like to stick with nvidia, can you recommend a card thats nvidia in the similar price range, maybe 20 or 30 dollars more, if there will be a substantial difference you think.

Hmm, theres not really anything unless you wanna hit the $200 mark. Any reason for nvidia only?

A gtx 560 is around 200usd depending on when you plan on purchasing you could probably find it on sale. Cyber monday is just around the corner. IMO its worth the extra $

On all the benchmarks I've seen I never seen one for just the plain old 560, its always the 560 Ti. Dont get the 560 if it isnt a 560 Ti or stick to the 6870 or a GTX 470

if you cant get the 560 TI go with the 6950 like I said the regular 560 isnt really good for gaming

How? it's nearly identical and on websites I'm checking it gets nearly the same fps as the 560ti
