Hello. I've watched a lot of videos on youtube about building a new computer and I'm pretty sure I've picked out my parts correctly but I'm still hesitant before a purchase and want some help.

I bought this motherboard awhile ago when it was on sale and I wanna know if I've picked the right Processor and Ram.

here is the processor

Here is the Ram I have already.

Are these compatible and if not could someone direct me to the right part and why it is compatible? I got nervous looking at reviews on newegg and a lot of people mentioned that they have an issue with an ivy bridge.

Thanks for the help.

Nope, it's not going to work. You cannot put an AMD CPU into a motherboard built for intel CPUs. You can get a CPU like the i3-2100 to go with that board for the same price as the AMD CPU and it will actually be compatible.

Thank you. I'm trying to build a gaming computer on the REAL cheap. Should I wait and get a quad core or will the processor you recommended be fine?

Define "REAL cheap"? What graphics are you planning to get to go with it because a gaming computer with low end graphics is a bit disappointing.

NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT. I have it in my current computer, to save money I'm going to use it until i can afford another.
