Is this setup ok?

Hi
Sorry if it's wrong place to ask this question.
I am thinking of buying a new copy stuff.
Here is what I want to use-
Motherboard- Asus p8h67-m evo
Ram- corsair vengeance (www.flipkart.com/corsair-vengeance-ddr3-4-gb-1-x-gb-pc-ram-cmz4gx3m1a1600c9/p/itmd2rypbx4eehaf?pid=RAMD2RYPMVWCEK6E)
Graphics card- zotac nvidia geforce gt 610 syenergy edition ddr3 2gb graphics card (www.flipkart.com/zotac-nvidia-geforce-gt-610-synergy-2-gb-ddr3-graphics-card/p/itmdbm6wyasrwtdx?pid=GRCDBM6PDGC9QJEZ)
Processor-Intel 3.3 GHz LGA 1155 Core i5-2500 Processor

I have already purchased ram and graphic card. Only motherboard and processor is left. So compatibility of ram and graphics card is must.
So, my question is- are all these components compatible with each other?
Also tell me if there are better things available in a lot same price range.
Thank you.

    Both boards are better than the board you selected.
    Better ram frequency support, PCIE 3.0, more Sata 3 and USB 3 ports, crossfire and SLI support. Z77 chipset(2nd and 3rd generation I series Prossesor support)

    Have you considered an AMD desktop? Here is a nice AMD processor FX8350 http://www.flipkart.com/amd-fx-8350/p/itmdfv4fffknf29s?pid=PSRDFV4DFPRBTSWY&ref=0c0c32a4-6edb-4173-a6e1-6079e2dd57ec&srno=t_1&otracker=from-search&query=amd%20fx%208350 Rs.12500
  2. Thanks buddy for motherboards.
    And both these support amd as well?
    Because Asus p8h6l m evo does not support amd.
    I first selected AMD 3.3 GHz AM3 FX6100 Processor and had to reject it cos asus p8h67.... does not support it.

    And many people told me that intel's quad core is better than amd's hex core (amd FX6100).
    Although its hard for me to believe. Is it true?
  3. if it is for gaming then yiu need to buy another graphics card because that gt610 is very weak for gaming (weaker than inbuilt hd3000)

    your rig will be bottlenecked due to gt610

    you should post for a new configuration in system section
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum-31.html
    and specify the your budget and purpose
  4. You need a AM3+ chipset to use an AMD processor. The processors I advised have Z77 chipset.
    Many people say that intel quad core is better than amd six or eight core and so many people are dead wrong. Just look at this http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+FX-8350+Eight-Core
    It is ok if you can afford the i7 3930K $600 ~ Rs.40000 but most people cannot.
  5. Actually I dont kow much about hardwares. I am only interested in softwares. But I wanna buy new pc that should be able to run crysis 3.
    Anyways... lets get to topic.
    So, you are saying that this "Z77" chipset will support amd processors?
    I actually want to buy AMD 3.3 GHz AM3 FX6100 Processor (6-Cored). Is it a good choice?
    The problem is my dad doesnt want me to play too many games. So he wants to buy cheap stuff so i wont be able to run much games on it. By great difficulty I was barely able to "fool" him with this hardware I am going to buy.
    So I cant go beyond following->
    Motherboard-> Maximum 10000Rs. or around.
    Processor-> Maximum 8000.
    Ram and Graphics card both costed about 5000 rs including discount.
    So, is amd 6-cored a good choice if compared with intel 3.3 GHz LGA 1155 Core i5-2500 (Quad Cored) Processor which is a little more costly of about 12000Rs.
    And yeah, I chose ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard From the motherboards you told me.

    So here is my final spec that i want to buy->

    Motherboard-> ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard
    Graphics Card-> zotac nvidia geforce gt 610 syenergy edition ddr3 2gb
    Ram-> Corsair Vengeance
    Processor-> AMD 3.3 GHz AM3 FX6100

    Is it a good choice?

    Big thanks for your help so far.
  6. NO!!! Z77 boards only support Intel cpus.
    -Bruce
  7. Can you then please tell me a motherboard that has similar specs to ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard and also supports amd processors?
    Also, If available, please tell me a good motherboard that supports both amd and intel processors.
    Thank you.
  8. Oh and by the way, I'd there is no good motherboard in my price range that supports amd, shall I go for Intel 3.3 GHz LGA 1155 Core i5-2500 Processor? Well performance difference of amd's 6 cored processor and 4 chief processor that I am going to use?
  9. 1. none of the board support amd as well as intel cpu
    2. you current system is under bottleneck situation due to gt610


    if you want good performer at cheap price then go for

    intel i3-3220 cpu (~Rs.6500)
    http://ark.intel.com/products/65693/Intel-Core-i3-3220-Processor-(3M-Cache-3_30-GHz)

    Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H Motherboard (Rs4200)
    http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-ga-b75m-d3h-motherboard/p/itmdacp36gegyeqt

    and use ATI Radeon HD7770 graphics card (Rs.8500)

    it is much much better than i5 + gt610 in crisis 3

    ok. I will buy a new graphics card that you told.
    Rest setup (Core i5, ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard, Corsair Vangeance Ram) are ok for high-end gaming?

    I basically want to know more about ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard. I never even heard of ASRock before! How is it as compared to intel?
  11. intel makes cpu (mainly)
    although they also make motherboard but not so good in design and quality
    but other motherboard manufacturers uses intel's chipset and use it in their board, asus, gigabyte are highly famous because of their solid build quality

    not fully sure but sayings are that asrock is subsidary of asus, asrock also makes good board with cheap price tag

    http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme4/
    asrock z77 extreme 4 is board for intel 2nd and 3 gen core 'i' series cpus
    it have good power design (8+4 phase) so it is good for cpu's health :D (comes handy during overclocking)
    it is good for 'k' series cpus for example i5-2500k
    it also good for using 2 graphics cards in single system (either nvidia or ati) as it have 2 x pciex16 v3 slots (runs at x8 mode when using 2 graphics cards)
    2+2 latest sata3 ports for faster hard disk drives (or solid state drives)
    also support usb3

    overall it is a very good board at its price
    customer care support of asrock :- no idea about it :p

    Thanks dude.
    You're suggestions were big help.
    One lay question. About this dual gpu support.
    In this processor (asrock extreme 4), there is dual gpu support.
    So can I use the combination of nvidia gt 610 syenergy and ati readon 7700 (the one you recommended me).
  13. yes you can use them
    your main graphics card will be hd7770 and you can use gt610 as your dedicated Phyx processing unit by using simple driver hacks for this hybrid combination of graphics card, it will help in games which uses Nvidia Phyx.

    some.links relatsd to hybrid configuration of ati graphics card and nvidia card
