Are these computer parts compatible?

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  6. well i guess you really have to decide on which is more important to you the board or the cpu.

    if its the cpu try this motherboard : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131767

    if its the motherboard then try an intel i3 processor like : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115078

    but that's just my opinion (not too much experience in area)
