More about 2100 build advice
  1. Your motherboard is NOT compatible . You need a socket 1155 .
    The budget models will have H61 chipsets

    The link to the challenger case is actually to a really expensive keyboard . The challenger is a very cheap case that Tomshardware gave an award to for costing less than $50 .
    The Antec 300 is a far better built unit
  2. here is a better build


    it is more expensive than what you have though
  3. You need s1155 mobo, not s1156.

    If the 2100 goes OFF sale before you buy, go with the 2120, it's only $5 more.

    Look at cpu/mobo combo's, usually you can save $5-$20 that way.

    The psu is fine up to a HD6870, however I'd suggest at least a 450-500w for future upgrades.
