More about compatability
  1. You have not given us enough information.

    Is all you bought so far that case or do you have other parts?

    Is this intel or AMD?

    a link to just the cast isnt enough for us to give you advice. so if you have other parts like a processor for starters let us know and we can go from there.
  2. i only have the case which i posted a link to above. and i would like a good/cheap motherboard which is under 45£ that fits perfectly in it.i already have a dvd drive,hard drive.
  3. What is roughly your budget for the whole system? I need to know if we should go intel or amd. are you planning on doing any gaming? or is this just for basic use?
  4. i plan on doing light gaming
  5. budget is 170£
  6. i looked at that motherboard before but its micro atx but the case only says ATX on it
  7. That is fine. Micro atx will fit in the case and has everything you should need on it. Unless you plan on putting in two graphics cards and sound cards and stuff. thats why it would be easier if you would give more information before asking questions.
  8. how can you tell if it can fit a micro atx motherboard?
  9. any ideas on what i could mabe change to make it better?
  10. well, to be honest i don't think you would be very happy with that setup. The MB is good, you can work with that. The ram is 1333 I would get DDR3 1600 let me look around on the uk sit to see what i can find.

    If you gave me your overall budget i can help you find the best bang for your buck.
  11. i seen people with 1333 and they do just fine.
  12. Alright man...buy what you want hope it works our for you. its just disappointing to see people buying inferior stuff for the same price of stuff that is a much higher quality. this is how peoples first builds end up not working right.
  13. wouldnt i have to overclock the motherboard to use a 1600 ddr3??
  14. not a fan on that kinda build

    This is the last thing i will leave you with. It will out perform all of the stuff you have chosen.

    The a10-5800k is a better cpu. with just as good if not better integrated graphics then your graphics card. (this means you will not have to buy a graphics card)
    Look up reviews on this processor and check out youtube videos of people gaming on it.

    You didn't have a hard drive in your build

    The psu in this build is much more likely to last longer and not blow up in your computer.

    The ddr3 Ram is clocked faster then your 1 stick of ram

    Good Luck with everything!
