[Help] Checking compatibility Tags: Homebuilt Compatibility Hard Drives Systems Product Last response: July 9, 2012 11:33 AM in Systems Share salakaup July 8, 2012 11:51:31 PM Hi It's my first time building a pc, so i would like to know if the parts i have chosen will be compatible with eachother. Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3 - http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=... CPU:AMD Athlon II X4 640 - http://shop.amd.com/US/All/Detail/Processor/ADX640WFGMB... GPU:HD6670 - http://www.msi.com/product/vga/R6670-MD1GD3.html RAM:G.skill F3-12800CL8D/ DDR3 1600 Mhz 2 x 2GB - http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=185 Hard drive: WD HDD SATA 250GB 7200RPM PSU:CORSAIR PSU 430W - http://www.corsair.com/builder-series-cx430-v2-80plus-c...

I recommend these two instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... These items will still put you within your budget; newegg takes paypal and personal checks (with special arrangement). For more advice, I would pick one vender and link it. salakaup July 9, 2012 11:28:44 AM I changed the mobo to the one u suggested, the ASUS M5A79 - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A97/ The CPU seemed a bit better than the one i chose, but for some reason in my country its like 30$ more expensive, so i'm gonna stick with the one i chose for now. RAM i changed to G.skill F3-12800CL9D/ DDR3 1600 Mhz 2 x 2GB - http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=88 (costs 20$ less than the previous one) I also changed GPU to SAPPHIRE HD 6670 - http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1... ( GDDR5 memory instead of DDR3 for 5$ higher price) Would these parts be compatible with eachother as well? Also I appreciate any suggestions. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
