Would this system work?

Hi,

I'm trying to build a cheap PC just for media editing and a little bit of gaming such as COD 4 etc. So nothing to powerful at all, although I do want it to be fast and efficient.

I've come across these parts and I was wondering if it is all compatible and would create the system I desire

  2. please guys need help!
  3. Those processors have graphics built-in - not really geared towards gamers who are buying proper graphics cards. If you want to play everything at 1080p and good settings, you want to be looking at a GTX660 really... and I'd recommend an i5 3450, or 3570K if you're into overclocking.
