Hi, I'm new here, and this is my first build. I'm wondering if these components are all compatible with each other.

The build:

AMD FX 8150

MSI 970A-G46 AM3+

Raidmax Blackstone RX-700AC 700W

MSI GeForce GTS 450 2 GB

Seagate Barracuda 2 TB 6 g/s

Antec 900

Thanks in advance!

Pcpartpicker is a good place to check compatibility. Just put in the components and it tells you if its compatible or not and it is also helpful for finding components with nice options to narrow down results. I put your build into it and it looks like it will all fit well.

Yes, they all work together but if you're gonna use this PC for gaming then let me tell you this right away... it sucks.


Edit: Give me a budget.

My budget is around $800, and I would prefer a great processor to a great graphics card.

Yes, tell us the purpose of your build. If it's for gaming, you have better choices. If it's for casual Internet/Office use, we can build something better.

It's for gaming, some photoshoping, dvd ripping, and some casual internet/office. Whatever you come up with, as I said before, I'd prefer it to have a fast processor.

Be more specific, what kind of games?

FYI... i will take care of the priorities for you, no offense but i am under the impression that you don't know what you're talking about, a better GPU will give you a much higher frame-rate in games and depending on the applications you use for ripping DVDs then the GPU will MUCH more important than the CPU because a lot of ripping applications support hardware acceleration from GPUs

For a more powerfull CPU these two build would be good.

If you want to stay with AMD then get this.

It has a much better GPU then the intel platform below but a much worse processor.

If you don't care about brand then get this Intel platform.

Much better processor then the AMD but less superior GPU.

If you want a build that would be better for gaming then get this.

This has a much better GPU/CPU ratio for gaming and you could upgrade the CPU later if you wanted.
