First build mainly compatibility check - rate/suggest.

So I'm getting some of these parts for free and this is my first time doing this so any help is appreciated I'm mainly worried about if the parts will go together.

CPU: Core i5 3450 3.1GHz LGA 1155 Processor - free
MOBO: GA-Z77-DS3H LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard - 109.99$
GPU: Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 768mb - free
RAM : HyperX blu 8GB DDR3-1333 (PC3-10600) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit 2x4GB - 40$
Case: Vortex 3620 ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - 40$
PSU : OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular ATX - free
HDD : Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive - free.

With only having to buy the ram,case, and mobo all the new parts come to 200$.

  1. Check my sig.
  2. Yes, all of those parts are compatable, and you must have good friends.
  3. Honestly, that will not be a good balance for gaming. I highly recommend a much better GPU.

    He got it for free. You cannot get a better gpu for that price! He can save up his money and someday buy a GTX670 or something and have a screaming rig, but for now there is nothing wrong with it and it will play any game out there at 1600 X 900 on high and at 1920 X 1080 on medium at least.
