Build Selected - Looking for Compatibility Issues
Dec 17, 2011, 1:39 AM
I've picked out all the parts, but could use some experts to take a look for compatibility issues. I'm also open to any other general opinions.
The computer isn't for gaming, but rather light usage, perhaps the occasional DVD. Just want something faster than my current paperweight.
SAMSUNG CD/DVD Burner Black SATA Model SH-222AB - OEM
NZXT GAMMA Classic Series Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
HITACHI 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM
BIOSTAR A880G+ AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
PNY XLR8 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MD8192KD3-1600-X9
CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply
AMD Phenom II X4 925 Deneb 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core
Was also tinkering with getting a SSD since I don't need the 500GB and the price is comparable.

Get an AM3+ motherboard for a little future proofing oh upgrading the CPU
If you plan to put the OS on the SSD then it will do could probably put small apps on it but it will boot the OS and apps super fast.
