So I have a few questions about a PC, I am building for my school as a senior project, I have a good knowledge about PC's. One of the questions I have is if these parts are compatible with each other posted below? To my knowledge they should work but I wanted to check and see. My next question is if I am missing anything part wise? Or if there is something better to switch out. The amount of money i have to spend on this project is $600 dollars and i want to try and get the best i can for that price. Any help with this would be great thank you.

Looks good to me if you go on amazon you can get a WD 500Gb sata III or 6gbs for ten dollars more you might want to consider that and if you can squeeze it into the budget you should want to get a 80+ psu

I would do this built a bit differently.

1) Get a better power supply. The TR2 is not a very reliable source of power.
2) The GTX650 is a slow video card for the price. The Radeon HD7770 can out-pace the 650 at the same price.
3) Get the i3-22xx series over the 21xx

where could i get the Radeon HD7770 at, because right now i'm using newegg to do all my shopping, and i could not find the i3-22** either, and what would you recommend for a power supply. If i have to i might be able to go to $620 on the price, if that includes shipping and taxes.

Here is what I came up with.

If you are presenting it to someone, you can go into detail about how the airflow of the case works, and how the power supply is an 80Plus certified model, deeming it energy efficient. You can also explain Hyperthreading, which the i3 supports, as well as maybe the BIOS system. Just giving you tips on stuff you can present on.

If you want to show them some cool software, you can show how the computer can also be used to help the world. At this moment, I am running a program called "Folding@Home" sponsored by Stanford, as well as AMD, Nvidia, Apple, Dell, Intel, and some others as well as the Stanford institute of medicine. The program ties computers together to fold protiens to help medical research. You can also go into how the GPU can be used to do that kind of work, and how it can do other things than just graphics.

Rhinoceros 3D
stick pivot animation
Microsoft 2010 (which i know this one will work)
maker bot 3d software
and some other robotics programs.


but i also want to be able to let some kids use it after school when they do not have a ride home or if they need to stay there, which there are a few kids like that. because their is nothing for them to do.

so my point being i want it to be able to run most school programs, and alright gaming for the kid who have to stay and wait.

I think this is the one I have, and it works great.

You COULD buy more fans, but with those parts you should be fine in terms of temperatures.


what about a OS?
And what kind of Wireless Adapter will work with this? sorry for asking all the questions, i just want to get this done right.

Any wireless adapter would work with that.

And the OS is going to be expensive wherever you buy it.
