Are these parts compatible? And need advice on case.
Hi. I am almost ready to buy the parts for my new pc. I think they are all compatible but as I have not built a computer before I want to be sure that they’re all compatible. I also have not decided what case to buy yet and was hoping for some advice on that as well, my budget for a case is £40/$62 and my overall budget is £525/$814. I already have the RAM, HDD and Optical drive sorry I don’t have the links or exact names of HDD and Optical drive.
All you have to worry about is if you have too old of a processor and too new of a video card.
A gtx 580 would probably bog down a Pentium 4 single core processor, for instance.
As for what RAM I would have went for, I would have typed in "<motherboard name> crucial RAM" and went to the crucial.com link and hit show all compatible RAM, and then I would have chosen something off that list.
This one is 7 GBP more and well worth it for the speed bumo
The 650 watter is good for one card .... but someday ya might wanna add 2nd so getting PSU to handle that now is advisable. But OCZ PSU's is not where I'd be looking. Jonnyguru performance ratings in ( )
I'd suggest an 850 watt Corsair HX series (10.0) or TX V2 series (9.5) ... your site is pretty limited on choices. Antec SG / CP series also gets (10.0) ... HCG / HCP (9.5)....XFX Core (9.5).
