I am wondering whether the parts in the list below will all be compatible with each other. If not, why.
Case: Zalman Z11
PSU: Corsair 600W Builder Series
Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 6870
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965
Motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M/USB3
Memory: 2 x 4GB Corsair Vengance
Heat sink: Arctic Cooling Freezer 13
Optical Drive: LG DVD Rewriter
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
If you have any recommendations on what parts to upgrade then please feel free to post a reply. However this build does have a budget of £600. I have been told that i might not be able to get the most performance out of my GPU because of my choice of motherboard. Is this true and if so, what alternative should i go for?
I am also wondering what kind of games i will be able to run on this machine. If anyone reading this has something similar to this build, please tell me what games, on what settings and with what FPS you play right now.
