Are these computer parts compatible? Tags: Homebuilt Computer Compatibility Systems Product Last response: June 15, 2012 3:42 PM in Systems Share newtopcbuilding June 15, 2012 3:14:33 AM 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. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... here is the processor http://www.amazon.com/AMD-Phenom-Black-3-4Ghz-4000MHZ/d... Here is the Ram I have already. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 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.

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. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... newtopcbuilding June 15, 2012 3:23:59 AM 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?

What graphics are you planning to get to go with it because a gaming computer with low end graphics is a bit disappointing. newtopcbuilding June 15, 2012 3:34:32 AM NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT.
