  1. It should work

    but IMO

    use the FX 6300 processor instead
    make sure the RAM is a 2 x 4 gig kit of 1600 Mhz , and rated for 1.5 volts or less
    The mobile blue hard drive? Use a 500 gig blue , 3,5 inch desktop drive
    The CM 430 does not have front USB 3 ports , but the 431 does

    Id spend $150 or so on a 23- 24 inch LED LCD . Much better gaming , and being able to surf without the window being full screen has a lot of advantages

  4. Hi jonaskrog!

    1) For less than $20 more, you can get a 1 TB hdd. If you're really into WD, here's an Amazon link.

    2) It says that your ram is 3x4GB. 8 GB will be more than sufficient for your needs, which you say are only gaming and simple browsing of the web.

    3) The Phenom II X6 1090t is a great processor, but is hard to find nowadays. If you actually find one, then it's a good choice as it performs 30% better than the FX-6300, although at a higher cost (about $100 more).

    thank you, i will look in to that hdd. about the processor, i found a site, that says it got 100+ on stock so i guess i am god there :D
  6. you can only use dual channel RAM kits . That is a triplle channel kit that is designed for an older intel motherboard. If you use it you have more RAM but it would all run in single channel and you'd be slower in most situations
