I am wanting to build a gaming PC, if these parts are not compatible could you take some out and replace them with ones that would work?
many, many thanks

  2. Could you also reccomend a CPU Cooler, or does the i3 have a built-in one?
  3. You don't need an aftermarket CPU cooler as you would not be overclocking (the i3 cannot be overclocked).

    The CPU will come with a stock cooler.
