Hello,

I want to build a computer and I was wondering if these parts are compatible. Any advice would be appreciated.

Video card is a little weak for the rest of the system, but it'll work. If you're gaming, might want to spend a little more there.

In that case, get the best video card you can afford.

550 TI is sufficient, however you can do better for roughly the same price. Like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 560 is a good choice too.

Theres even the Power Color Radeon HD 6850 on for $139 plus free game why not that one why pick the HIS

I would drop your motherboard to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and the PSU to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... throw in the extra $95 towards http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That would be a much more balanced system IMO


EDIT: if you're not interested in the refurb 560 ti i linked above, go with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... which is only $15 more than that one.

I was looking for a factory oc'd one. IMHO, video card overclocking is better left to the factory, they have to guarantee that speed, vs overclocking on your own with no guarantee in a performance bump, and a voided warranty if you fry it. Thats how I look at it anyway.

90 day warranty refurb'd video card. Bad idea. Your mobo recommendation is a good idea though.

I wouldn't recommend the powercolor brand at all. That is reason enough to go with a different brand.
Here is a list of worst to best performance

550Ti
6850
6870 or 560 (same)
560Ti
Whichever you can get the best price on I would go with.

What resolution is the monitor you'll be using for games? That will determine which card is best for you. If you're planning to play games at 1080p for a while, you can shoot as high as your budget will allow.

And what are some of the games you plan to play (currently available or in the near future?). If you plan on getting a 1080p monitor in the near future, I would shoot for a 7870. Soon, the gtx 670 will be out and that should perform very well for its pricepoint ($350).

For a 1280 x 720p tv, though, almost any card mentioned above will give you good frames.
