Hi, I’m building a custom gaming pc on a budget of about $450, I have a few parts that I am going to get used so that I can get a good graphics card like the dvd drive, case, and hard drive. But for the power supply, motherboard, processor, and graphics card I am going to buy new. So what I need is a compatibility check to makes sure that the mother board, processor, and power supply will work together. So will you please look at these and tell me if they will work together or not, and if they are going to be any good. But I am more interested in if they are going to work together. Thanks for looking at this.

They will work great, but the PSU is a bit overkill, but still a great PSU. Besides, what GPU are you using?

I was going to get a gtx 460 1 GB at least and pack the thing with hard drives, and a couple DVD drives. So I was planning on the 700 because according to the extreme psu calculator with one hard drive and one DVD drive I would need at least a 540 watt. So since I planned on putting more stuff like DVD drives, hard drives, fans, and mods I figured that it would be safer to go with the bigger power supply for the same price.

For $60, it can't hurt to get a 700 Watt. Everything's compatible. Looks fine.

Don't get a 460 - it's 3 generations old now. If you're going to get a video card in that price range it'd be better to go with a Radeon 6850 or even a 7770.

That will be a good setup - the 2120 is a solid CPU for the price.
