Default Hardware compatibility

Hey, building my first computer here, found these parts on Newegg and was wondering if they were all going to be compatible. I dont know if there is an easy way to tell or not but there is a disclaimer on all purchases that says there not responsible for compatibility issues within bundles so it raised concern.
here are the parts

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Desktop Processor (Model: HDT55TFBGRBOX)

ASUS AM3 AMD 890GX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX Motherboard (Model: M4A89GTD PRO/USB3)

ASUS Radeon HD 5830 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity (Model: EAH5830 DIRECTCU/2DIS/1GD5)

Kingston 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory (Model: KVR1333D3K2/4GR)

Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (Model: ST31500341AS)

LG Black 24X DVD+R DVD-R 6X SATA DVD Burner - Bulk (Model: GH24NS50)

COOLER MASTER Red Steel/Plastic/Mesh bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (Model: AM-932-RWN1-GP)

COOLER MASTER GX Series 750W ATX12V v2.31 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply (Model: RS750-ACAAE3-US)

COOLER MASTER Intel Core i7 compatible V8 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler (Model: RR-UV8-XBU1-GP)

For the price, the gtx 460 is abunch better. But besides that, it looks okay.

do i have to worry about that cards compatibility? and can you be more specific? i looked it up and there were a bunch. Maybe toss up a link?
Anything you can add will undoubtedly help because i have little to no clue how hardware interface or how to check if there comparable or not.

Also, the memory in that bundle is out of stock, what should i chose instead?

thanks for any help you can give

I don't know where you got your results from. The GTX 460 and HD5830 trade blows at higher resolutions but they are **** near identical in terms of performance.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 460: The Fermi We Were Waiting For : GeForce GTX 460 At 1 GB And 768 MB

It runs a little cooler, and pulls almost exactly as much power.

It's up to whichever he likes best. Nvidia or ATI.

It comes from Anandtech reviews.
NVIDIA?s GeForce GTX 460: The $200 King - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News

The 1Gig card is the $220 king card now, and with new drivers, only on 1st set now, it'll get beter.

Seems Toms has different results.

Indeed. And if you bought 1 of each you would have different results as well.

of course its all compatible, its a bundle from newegg....but if your looking to switch out parts start with the ram, its value ram.....


how much are you wanting to spend on ram? i like these for that setup-
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL8D-4GBHK

Since its a bundle, just stay with the gpu it comes with, the ati. No reason to switch guys.

Well i mean hes buying a whole complete desktop, and since the gpu is included why buy a different one unless you wanted an upgrade.

Default Re: Hardware compatibility

i was really just addressing that one part i quoted, because i've seen newegg bundles (not as big as that one, only ones with like 2 parts) where the parts included in the bundle are not compatible, like amd cpu with intel board, ddr2 with ddr3 board, am2 cpu with am3 board.

just making a point that you should always like double check whatever is bundled in like that to make sure it's compatible, even though probably like 95% of newegg's combo deals are compatible, it doesn't hurt to just check real quick.
