i am pretty sure that all these things are compatible except for the case and the power supply but that can be fixed if they are wrong. so does any 1 have any tips to make things easier?? or any tips in general?? the prices in the links arnt set so i might be able to find stuff cheaper (not newegg i live in australia) so any help would be appreciated
