Tags: Components Last response: May 6, 2012 8:45 AM in Components Share BuLLeTT May 6, 2012 3:12:05 AM I'm taking on the challenge of building my first PC and was just wanting to make sure that the following components will all be 'compatible' and work fine together: Case: CoolerMaster HAF X Case RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Z F3-19200CL11Q-16GBZHD 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 MotherBoard: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard Graphics Card: ASUS Radeon HD7970 DirectCU II 3GB CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K Power Supply: Corsair HX-1050 80 PLUS Silver Power Supply Thanx for the help in advance More about : compatibly Best solution amuffin May 6, 2012 3:13:17 AM Nope, the board is made for intel processors, not amd.

How about this? i7-3770k Asus p8z77-v pro Ok, changed the Motherboard (silly mistake) and changed the processor to Intel Core i7 3770K. How are things looking now?

Something in the 650-750 range would be plenty amuffin May 6, 2012 5:07:14 AM What if he wants to Crossfire? That will run four 7970's and is future-proof! BuLLeTT May 6, 2012 5:21:51 AM Any suggestions for a 650-750w power supply? amuffin May 6, 2012 5:22:36 AM Corsair HX750W. BuLLeTT May 6, 2012 5:27:17 AM Ok so now my build stands at: - ASUS Radeon HD7970 DirectCU II 3GB - G.Skill Ripjaws Z F3-19200CL11Q-16GBZHD 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 - CoolerMaster HAF X Case - ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard - Intel Core i7 3770K - Corsair HX-750 Power Supply Should this be setting me back $2100, or am I getting ripped off? amuffin May 6, 2012 5:28:55 AM You can't use the Rampage Extreme because that is a different chipset/socket! The only processors that are supported are the i7-3820 and 3930k! However, the 3770k outperforms the 3820 and the 3930k will set you back further! BuLLeTT May 6, 2012 5:34:49 AM So them what mobo should I go with -_- That would fit the 3770k? amuffin May 6, 2012 5:40:43 AM I am asumming you want high end? That would either be the ASUS P8z77-V PRO, or the Asrock Fatal1ty Professional, or Gigabyte Z77-UD5h BuLLeTT May 6, 2012 5:43:29 AM I chose the ASUS P8Z77-V PRO. NOW will it all be compatible? amuffin May 6, 2012 5:47:18 AM Yep! But do you have an hard drive, copy of windows, and cpu cooler? BuLLeTT May 6, 2012 7:07:17 AM Already have Hard Drive and a copy of windows. CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler amuffin May 6, 2012 8:44:53 AM Ok, cool you have everything!
