Compatibility of RAM, Motherboard, Processor Bundle

Can anyone tell me if the items in this bundle are compatible

1) With each other
2) With an ASUS GTX650 (1gb)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1134285&cm_sp=DailyDeal-_-1134285-_-Combo

Items:

Intel Core i5-3450 Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.5GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637I53450

BIOSTAR B75MU3+ LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model 996770

Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Again, I have an ASUS GTX650 GPU. Will these bundle items be compatible with each other and with my video card?

Thanks, Your Awesome

  1. You will need a PSU. They will all work. I don't usually recommend these bundles, however. Do you want to use this as a gaming computer?
  2. Yes I use my computer for mostly gaming; also use after effects and the like from time to time. I use it for school (online classes) too.

    My current power supply is 620W
  4. It will be more than enough. The GPU is on the weak side. Don't expect more than low/med settings at 1080p in modern games.

    Definitely going to be my next upgrade. That and a SSD to put windows on

    Also my hard drive crashed last night, I found this will browsing newegg. Figured why not; I've got a dual core cpu and 4gbs of ram and a mobo thats not SATA III compatible. Don't judge me haha
  6. I have a dual core and I could take out 4gb of my RAM and still max games. Gaming is 85% GPU. My i3 can handle pretty much any game. Your upgrade won't net you any gaming performance. You will have to upgrade the GPU to see any FPS gains in games.

    Why don't you usually recommend the bundles?

    Could you recommend a better alternative to a similar round of upgrades in the $400-500 range? (excluding video card; im okay with it for now). Again, my hardrive crashed last night so thats the priority.

    thanks for being awesome

    Awesome thanks a million. Do you think I should upgrade the heatsink/CPU fan or is the stock one on these processors any good? My 620W PSU will be sufficient for this wont it?
  10. Your PSu should be fine. What is the brand? You cannot overclock this CPU so the stock fan will be perfectly fine.

    Do you happen to know where i can get a cheap version of win7? Of course I didnt have my HDD backed up so I lost everything. is windows cool enough to call up and finagle a boot disk from?

    Could I just get a windows 7 revcovery dvd or do i need to purchase a new OS?
