  1. Not bad at all, that HD6670 will be able to play all new games, even at the humble "Low" settings :)
  2. The mobo is a socket 1155 and the processor is a socket 1156. I don't think they are compatible.
  3. Hi RawBunnie,

    If you could, please follow the format listed in the sticky section. It helps to know certain things such as reason for build, total budget, preference parts, etc.

    Could be found here:


    you dont need a cpu cooler the stock box intel cpu come with one. you dont need a 700w power supply. you want if this is your first build a mid size atx case not a mini one. the mini are ok for work and web pc. for a gaming rig there small and hard to work with and do to there small size have low airflow. you want to look at case that has two fans min. one pulling air in from the front and one out. with case with power supply be care full on the ps that come with the cases. a lot of the cheap case come with no name power supplys. if these fail they can take out your system.
