I'm going to do my own build for the 1st time. I've pretty much settled on the pieces, and I just need to find out if the components I've selected have any compatibilty issues. I do know the RAM I've chosen will work despite not being listed on the MB's QVA.
Approximate Purchase Date: Immediately, as soon as I confirm compatability
Budget Range: No more than $550 U.S. Less, if at all possible
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Home, Medium-Resource Level Gaming (Not 3-D 1st-Person Shooters), Surfing the Internet
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, Speakers, CD/DVD Burner
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg
Country: United States
Parts Preferences: See list below
Overclocking: Probably No
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: 800 x 600 (min) 1152 x 864 (max)
Additional Comments: Going for budget items with a shelf life. Replacing PC that's 6 years old.
Sounds like everything is compatible with each other and should have no problems. The PSU sounds a little on the weak side if you were ever to upgrade video cards or something, but for that current setup it should be fine.
