Hi I just need conformation that these parts will be compatible with each other. If something is wrong or you have a suggestion please don't hesitate to help.



HyperX blu 4GB DDR3-1333 (PC3-10600) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 2GB Memory Modules)

TX-606 mATX Mini-Tower Computer Case

Core i3 2100 LGA 1155 3.1GHz Boxed Processor

H61MLB LGA 1155 H61 mATX Intel Motherboard

ZT-40608-10L NVIDIA GeForce GT 430 2048MB DDR3 PCIe 2.0 x16 Video Card

This PC won't be for gaming but I would like to upgrade it down the road. Now it's just gonna replace my Dimesion 3000 desktop.

It should work well as it is , but if you are not gaming on it now then I'd suggest that you not buy the graphics card at all .
The H61 mb will let you use the graphics that are built in to the processor , and they are perfectly adequate for your usage.

You could use the money you save to upgrade to a more versatile Z68 motherboard , and you could use a 2 x4 gig kit of RAM

Looks like a strong build and at the right price, I would grab it quick before the rebates run out, although... the Z68 will give you more options in the future. You likely won't need more than 4GB of ram tho unless you are running some serious virtual machines or something..

If you do want a graphics card get a 5570 they are more powerful for a better price.

Thank's for the quick replies. I'll see if I can incorporate some of your ideas. I'll repost if I come up with something. I was trying to lower the price a bit. Also are there graphics built into the processor I chose. I thought only motherboards could have intergrated graphics.

Ok nvm I just checked the specs for the processor and It has Intel HD 2000 graphics
