Default Final question before ordering

I have one last question before ordering my new build.

Mobo: Newegg.com - ASUS M3A78-CM AM2+/AM2 AMD 780V Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

Processor: Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma 2.7GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 95W Dual-Core black edition Processor - Processors - Desktops

COMBO Gpu and ram: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!


Processor Cooler: Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

My question is will the cooler fit on the mobo, since it is a mATX, my computer case is a antec 900.

yes the cooler will fit fine, am2 sockets are the same on any form factor board.
Also i no you've probably already considered this but you could get a p45 and e5200 for only a little bit more , maybe $30 or so.

yeah, but that architecture is dead, while if he gets the right amd motherboard, he can still upgrade later on.

I wouldn't count that 780V as the right motherboard.

I would get this combo instead, the mobo plus RAM: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Much better motherboard, will allow you to upgrade to AM3 later, and that RAM has slightly better timings for the same cost. The motherboard is 25 bucks more after a MIR, but it's worth it. Trust me, I own it.
