More about parts compatible
  1. They will all work together but...

    I do have some questions/suggestions:

    Is there a particular reason you went with an AMD CPU? AMD gets beat by Intel at almost every price point.

    I would recommend getting 8gb (2x4gb) of DDR3 1600mhz RAM. G.Skill make some good kits, I particularly like their ARES line because they have a lower profile and don't conflict with the CPU heat sink like some other kits.

    I would replace that PSU with either: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371030 . They are both cheaper and from more reputable brands.
  2. because they are expensive the i5 this is more of a budget build i changed my psu
    and ram thanks
  3. That PSU is complete junk. And don't expect to max out anything with that setup. You can get an Intel i5 in your system if you post the budget.
  4. yeah like i said i changed my psu and you have to spend an extra 100 on the cpu

    Not necessarily. How much are you looking to spend overall on that system? The FX is such a poor choice when even the lowest end Intel CPUs completely eclipse them in just about every single category.
  6. under 1100
  7. Move on over to one thread, makes it easier to keep track of you

    .

    Just because I can't get enough of this.

  9. You'd be better off with an i3-2100 than a FX-4100. Here's a comparison between the FX-8150 (8 cores vs the -4100's 4 cores) and the i3-2100. They trade blows across the board. The i3-2100 destorys the FX-4100
  10. For $1100 I think I would scrap that whole build and get something like this:

    A little bit over $1100 but way better CPU, motherboard, PSU, GPU, RAM, you name it. If you want to keep it under $1100 replace the video card with the 7870.
  11. what about os
  12. And monitor. (Solid build though, G-unit)
  13. well thanks for the help guys i might change my cpu

  15. Couple notes:

    -Stupid PC partpicker always puts MicroCenter price first for Intel CPUs. That price is In-store only. Meaning you have to actually live near one to buy it that cheap. Its $200-220 everywhere else.

    - Yes I went with an Sandy Bridge 2500K instead of Ivy 3570K. Why? Because its usually cheaper, and Ivy Bridge despite being newer, offers absolutely no improvement over Sandy for gamers (less than 1% improvement) and yet the Ivy typically costs more.

    - CoolerMaster 212+ CPU cooler instead of 212 Evo. They perform almost identical, but the 212+ is $10 cheaper.

    - No I didn't go with the case you wanted, you can drop down on the video card a little bit if you like. The next step down would be the 7850. Still a pretty good video card, overclocks well enough to perform on par with a stock GTX 570.
  16. Best answer
    I adjusted my build a bit to include OS and monitor but yeah I hate that PC Part Picker always lists Micro Center - that's not always an option for everybody.

    Try this:
