this is the spec im planning on using with vista 64bit. the case is over the top i now but im kinda set on it. as this is my first build i need abit off help what i whant to know is if all these parts are compatable with each other and would work. second thing is should i change any of the parts to something different baring in mind i need to keep it on the same budget as it is now.third of all i know how to put parts together then what i just stick windows vista 64bit in and install?

and would this be capable of overclocking?

that case is way way way way way way way way way overkill for that budget, and that's an understatement.

swap it for an antec 300 and up the PSU to a PCP&C 610w and the graphics card to a 4850 or 4770, also add an akasa nero cooler so you can get a nice high overclock on that CPU.

i know the case is overkill but kinda set on it as this is my first build im not spending to much but i plan to use that case in the future for a much beteer spec comp overclocking im not planning to do for a few months until i have better cooling

^ but it basically kills your build, and most cases will last for a good 5-10 years before you need to replace them.

if it's a gaming PC, the best way for your budget would be following my advice, if it isn't, then why on earth would you want such an big case when you could save a lot of space and money with a CM 330.

i no i no basically this is not for me im building for a mate but hes planning on upgrading each month and i said same about case and the same one you said but hes wont listen and hes kinda set on that case so would this spec all work with each other

tell your mate hes an idiot and to wait a month so that he can afford atleast a decent gfx card

or ditch the 770 mb and get a 790 g series board so he doesnt have to buy a gfx card at all to get the pc running

then go with a 790g mb and dont buy a gfx card he will not need in a month . Later he can add a gfx card but in the meantime he will be fine .

Im not convinced about the case either btw . An antec 300 will do the job and save so much money . Eventually he can build using a HAF but by then he will probably want another computer as a pvr or home server or whatever .

Nice board but no . it has the 790 xt chipset . Only the 790 G has on board gfx

From the same website the best choice is
Asus M4A78T-E AMD 790GX
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB...

Its even a bit cheaper . It has crossfire potential , but even without a gfx card it will run 3d games at moderate settings so till he can afford a decent gfx card he can just use that .

Heres a review of the board . Read the whole thing but heres a link to the benchmarks they got while gaming on just the onboard

you could actually play crysis on low settings , and it will be fine for all other uses
