Hey everyone

i will be using this computer to play games and surf the web.

Being a first time builder, I have a few concerns going into this, the biggest one being are my chosen parts compatible? I DONT WANT JUNK!!! If i chose a bad/cheap part please tell me and give me a suggestion as to what i should do about it.Also, does the PSU have enough wattage?

Budget - $550

Country - USA

this is the build i have right now..

Graphics card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MOBO - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (is this mobo any good?)

RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (630w... is this enough?)

hard drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... (is this a good case?)

That mobo is not compatible with my cpu
are there any other mobos that are a bit cheaper than that one? im running quite a tight budget.. all of my parts chosen ARE compatible, right? im just not 100% sure being a first time builder. Also, will the video card will run modern games on high/max?
thank you.

If you build based on the System Builder Marathon, than it is 140% compatible. But if not, it still compatible.
