Question first gaming build

ok im pretty sure that this is what i want to biuld and im pretty sure that everthing is compatible with each other.

however i might be wrong so instead of buying now and being out 50 bucks im asking you guys is everything good with each other .

and i also was wandering about overclockability is this ok for that

if not just say no i dont want to change my rig

i will change my rig however if somthing is not as good as somthing else that is around the same price range or if i am wasting some power some where then lemme know

DVD BURNER

now what i would like to know is if

the ram and mother board is compatible

the hard drive and mother board is compatible

im pretty sure that the cpu and the mother board is compatible but check that to please

the dvd burner and the mother board is compatible

the video card and mother board is compatible

and if there is such a thing as like a dvd burner and a video card not being compatible (like two perhipheals)or a ram and a hard drive like stufe with out a motherboard.

if ive done my home work everything should be good but everyone makes mistakes.

I skimmed over it, and I think everything is compatible, but...


You could get a better Hard drive than that for just a little more, and the Case + Power supply is a bad choice. The Power Supply that comes with the case *usually* is trash, so I'd go with a different one

CPU-fine

Motherboard-you choice of motherboard isn't great. I would recommend the mobo in my sig as this support sata2 which you need for your HD to reach its potential.

RAM-fine

Video card-for a gaming computer you are spending quite a low ammount on a video card compared to your CPU. I would recommend getting an EVGA 6800gs or better.

HD-fine

Case-fine

PSU-you're going to need a better PSU as the one that comes with that case is junk and I don't think it has a 24 ATX pin connector which is required for that mobo. The Fortron 450W is a great budget PSU and will satisfy your needs

I don't reccomend ASUS products usually, you could go for the A8N-E or you could look into the MSI K8N Neo4-F.
