  1. Yes, what are you wanting to do with this system?
  2. Gaming and general use
  3. You have no graphics card listed. Which one do you plan to get?
  4. Im going to reuse my GTX560ti
  5. The 8150 is kind of crap. Get an 8320 for sure.
  6. Okay will do! So to be clear all these parts are compatible right?
  7. Yes sir! Make sure to get low profile RAM in case you ever want to put an aftermarket CPU cooler in there.
  8. Ok thanks
  9. Yep, All the parts are compatible.

    I have another question it says on new egg the memory standard: DDR3 2100(OC) / 1866(OC) / 1800(OC) / 1600(OC) / 1333 / 1066 / 800

    What does OC mean?
  11. it means overclock. The motherboard can support all those RAM speeds

    So can i use this stick
    G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866

    Sorry for sounding like a noob.
  13. Those will work fine. Just get 1600mhz though. No reason to spend extra money for no gain.
