Hey everyone,

Im building a pc, mainly to be used for gaming but for college work too.

These are the components i chose:

CPU: AMD Athlon II x4 610e (already bought)
Motherboard: Gigabyte AM3+970A-D3
GPU: EVGA nVidia GTX550 ti
Monitor: Asus VE247H
RAM: G Skill Ripjaw 8gb (2x4gb)
Case: Coolermaster Elite 430
HDD: WD caviar blue 500Gb
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty series 550w

with windows 7

Are these all compatible? I think they are but I'm not 100% sure

Any help and/or suggestions would be great

Thanks Guys

why the heck would you buy a chip that is 3 generations old? why??? i would instantly return it for something much better like a pentium g630 which can actually game

if you cant return it, get this

Probably because I'm a complete noob at building a pc? haha

Thats why I'm posting here, the reason the CPU has already been bought is because someone bought it for me
