I just put together a setup on newegg.com and I wanted to know if everything is compatible with each other. Also Im putting this hardware in my old a1747c micro atx case. Will my old power supply from that computer work with my new setup? Heres a pic of the specs of the power supply http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/402/photo2cfe.jpg/
All those parts are compatible with each other. But any graphics card that requires an external PCIe power cable (HD 6770, GTS 460) will require you to upgrade your PSU. 300W is border-line weak. Use this PSU calc to find the size you need. http://www.thermaltake.outervision.com/
The board amuffin suggested for you would be better IF your case can accept a full size ATX board. You mention your case as being a mini ATX.
yep 2 many issues, form not enough power to to small a case...
your best bet is start a build from scratch with another 100-150 to cover the case and psu...
there are some very nice cases on offer atm at newegg and some great rebates on 550w psu's
also buying a z68 and a 2500 is a waste... you cant oc the 2500 so you may as well save some money and buy an h67 or h61 motherboard... this will save a fair bit of money...
or you can go for 4 gigs of ram instead of 8 and put the money you save towards a 2500k which will cost 10-20bux more...
tell you what. post your maximum budget.(when i say max i mean exactly that as people will always say spend more).. im sure the guys can build you a decent pc for the money...
i5 2400 -190
h61 mb - 60
hyper 212+ - 30
psu I posted -40
hdd- 60 (don't need to buy if you have one)
dvd drive- 20 (don't beed to buy if you have one)
case- use your case
8gb drr3 1600 - 50
6870 - 145
total: $600, 520 if you don't need dvd drive and hard drive. you'd also need windows if you don't already have it.
