approx purchase this month, for gaming, 720p resolution.

Hi im building my very first PC and i was wondering if the CPU, Motherboard and Power Supply were compatible with each other. I plan on playing Battlefield 3 on Medium/low settings 720P resolution.

CPU - Intel G620 dual core 2

500w cooler master extreme power plus

Gigabyte-GA-H61M-DS2- Intel micro atx

Case - Fractal design core 1000 cases

I plan on using this with a radeon 6670 1gb ddr3 (or if you have any recommended GPU within $70- $100 price range.)
Im new so im also wondering if the Motherboard being micro atx does that mean the PSU and Case have to be micro atx too?

I'm personally not caring for your power supply choice here, mostly because of this article by HardOCP
linked to the conclusion page - perhaps a Corsair CX500?
And no. your PSU should be standard ATX, your case can be any size that can fit micro-ATX (virtually all)

can you link me to one thats compatible with the mobo/cpu on amazon? one not so pricey, maybe around $60,65.

and do you have any other recommendations?

edit: im thinking this one is ok, corsair cx500w atx 12v 80 plus bronze

is a 430w psu ok? I hear the 6670 isnt power hungry.
