Hey, sorry if this is the wrong section, I'm about to sink around $400 dollars into a, what I believe on paper, nice budget build.
I just wanted to make sure that the parts are compatible with each other, to the best of my knowledge at first and second glances, I believe they should be but thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

*I am looking at GTX 550 ti or 560, but the 560 is better and the price is almost the same so I just decided to spend the extra 5-7 dollars on the GTX 560...

As for Power Supply, I still have a nice gaming series Corsair 600w PSU, so I'm just going to use that and for an optical drive, I have this computer which I'm going to just gut it of its optical drive and use it for the new computer (I assume that's okay?).

If anyone has any advice on any cheaper or 'budget efficient' parts or if I need to change anything out I am all ears.
Thanks in advance for everyone's time and efforts.

oh my that mobo is so cheap!! good. the fx 4100 is also pretty good value for the price. everything seems alright except maybe the video card.
instead of the 560 SE i would suggest you rather get a 650 Ti. its faster than a 560SE and costs the same pretty much .
pretty good budget build.
what games you planning to play and what resolution ?

Thanks for the quick reply;
I play on a 21" monitor, no 1080p or anything fancy. Resolution would be like 1440x900 to 1650x1050

I know those numbers are wrong but you get my drift.

For games I am not playing anything really even that graphics intensive, I just want them to be smooth as silk.
Source games, Dota 2, Counter-strike GO, maybe Diablo 3 and WoW.

you could also look to build yourself a trinity based system if you are not planning to play intensive games.
an A8-5600k would be a good choice. add a 6670 to it and you have a nice system for the games you want to play at a lower cost.
have you considered trinity?

I haven't but I just bought it for 415$ after shipping and taxes. not bad at all I just heard some bad things about the CPU but I'm sure it can't be THAT bad... Wish me luck I'll let you know once I get everything set up
