Hello,
Yesterday, I put in an order with newegg for the following parts to build my first gaming rig:
http://pcpartpicker.com/user/rh0gii/saved/3mJ9

CPU AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core $109.99
Motherboard Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+ $94.99
Memory Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 $84.99
Storage A-Data Premier Pro SP600 128GB 2.5" SSD $79.97
Video Card Asus Radeon HD 7790 2GB $129.50
Case Enermax ECA3253-BW ATX Mid Tower $29.99
Power Supply Cooler Master 500W ATX12V

Problem is.. with... the original PSU that was in the build was sold out... but like an idiot, instead of using pcpartpicker to select another one that would be compatible, I just browsed through newegg and ordered the following:

Cooler Master i500 - 500W Power Supply with 80 PLUS Bronze Certification
lntel ATX 12V V2.3
80 PLUS BRONZE Certified
90 - 264 V 50/60 Hz
+3.3V@20A, +5V@A20A,+12V@38A, -12V@0.3A, +5Vsb@2.5A

I just noticed the "Intel ATX 12V V2.3" discription, and this build is for an AMD rig.
Will this still work or do I need to get a different one? using pcpartpicker with "compatibility filter" enabled, this PSU doen't show up. But if I turn off the filter and add it. the build doesn't give me an "incompatibilty flag"...
I'm confused.

I've got a different one on order with Amazon that was in the "filtered" list, should I just go with it and Return the i500 PSU when it arrives? or should I not worry and take the original order and cancel the amazon order before it ships?

thanks for your help!

thanks for the quick reply. I think that I can cancel my other order from amazon and go with my original build. Thanks again. This forum's posters are AWESOME!
