  1. I wouldnt go with that combo. Its too expensive and doesnt do THAT well in gaming.
    Here you go: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/biDL
    Or this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/biEM
  2. How do I know/check that all parts in pcpartpicker are compatible with each other :u? That's always confused me.
  3. I wouldnt pick parts that arent compatible :3

    Made some changes. Not entirely sure if all parts are compatible, but did my research and tried my best with it. Also, can someone tell me if this build will need a CPU Cooler? Suggestions welcomed as well. Thanks.
