Solved Are all these parts compatible? (Please help) Tags: New Build Compatibility Systems Product Last response: June 20, 2012 12:30 AM in Systems Share Justin0521 June 19, 2012 11:26:44 PM Please let me know if all these parts are compatible, and will make for a nice budget PC build: CPU: Intel Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge 2.6GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80623G620 GPU: ASUS EAH6670/DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply Optical Drive: ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive Case: Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Motherboard: ASRock H61M-DGS LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL I read that the 3.0 x16 PCIe slot on the motherboard is backward compatible with the 2.1 x16 PCIe on the GPU. Is that true? Is there another better budget motherboard than the one I have chosen? This PC will be built to play games like Skyrim, Diablo III, and Minecraft on medium settings. I will be using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit. Please help, any and all tips are greatly appreciated.

The build will suit your purposes jut fine. m 0 l Justin0521 June 19, 2012 11:39:29 PM Cranked, will that motherboard be okay, or would it be worth it to throw in like an extra $25 and find a better board? m 0 l Related resources please help me make sure my parts for the pc would be fully compatible - Forum Are these pc parts compatible?

If I were to spend $25 on anything, I'd put $25 into your graphics card. An AMD HD 7770/7750 or NVIDIA GT 640/550Ti would serve you well. m 0 l Best solution cranked June 19, 2012 11:48:47 PM There is nothing wrong with that board. The only thing you would gain by spending more money are additional PCI slots, ram slots, sata ports and so on. It sounds like you really don't need that stuff though. Not sure what else you plan to put in the pc, but it has only one additional PCI slot other than the GPU slot. Not sure if that will be a problem for you? Share Justin0521 June 20, 2012 12:18:14 AM Only the parts I have listed are the parts I plan on using, so no overclocking, SLI or crossfiring. So I think I will look into a better graphics card. Thanks for the help cranked, and bavarians6. m 0 l Justin0521 June 20, 2012 12:30:16 AM Best answer selected by Justin0521. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
