Hey guys, I have some advice concerning this new I'm planning on building. I've been researching and playing around with possible builds for a couple years now, so I know my intermediate stuff pretty much. But now is time time for me to actually buy one of my builds, and this is the most promising.

I should mention that I plan on using this computer for gaming, and I don't mean simple games I mean a budget PC that can games such as Planetside 2, Starcraft 2, Metro 2033, and other newer games at at least medium-high. I don't plan on maxing anything out (or getting that high of settings) except the less modern games. So, without further ado, here is my list

In no particular order.

Disk Drive:






CPU (combo'd with mobo):

MOBO (combo'd with cpu):

OS: The usual Windows 7 premium, no going to go to 8.

For those who prefer a picture:

So, in general, I would like to know if these parts are fully compatible. (I've done my research, I believe they are, however I'd like a double check if anybody is so kind as to do so). I've also heard some tips that the CPU (APU) I picked out is cross-fire'able with the 6670 (graphics wise), if that is confirmed that would be great, and if any better GPU's are able to cross-fire with the APU, that'll be even better. Lastly, some tips and advice on the components I picked out, if there are any better components for less or slightly more, that's appreciated. I'd prefer not to blow my $600 budget.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the quick reply, I'll look more into your build when I have the time, but I also was wondering on the alleged cross-fire between the cpu integrated graphics system and the dedicated video card. If it is even possible I'd like to know.

You can find most of the information here.

I think you will find very limited game support. Thread mentioned DX 10 or 11 games only, and not all. Real world benchmarks in those games would probably be similar to the 7770 I linked, but that GPU will work anywhere.
