Default Hardware Help

Just wondering if all of these components will be compatible.

Intel Core 2 Duo E7300



EVGA 512-P3-N976-AR GeForce 9800 GT

with a G31MX-K 2.0 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

As long as you have a full ATX case and not an mATX case.

You might want to explain a little more than just get this. Why? What's better about it? is it personal experience with it or reading reviews, etc... by just saying this, doesn't help out a potential buyer, user.

Don't assume everyone wants to overclock until they say they do John.

guh, soo, tell me, would it be easier, AMD or Intel for me since I will explain the situation for you guys. My PC is a piece of crap, I don't even have pixel shader 3.0, so I wanted to get a brand spankin' new i7, but I decided not to with the release of direct X 11 cards leter on, so I am just upgrading my pc for the moment so I can play games well on Gamer settings until I save up for a High Performance PC and sell this one, so no overclocking for now is expected.

actually, I may be able to get a quad phenom at the same price as the e7300

ah, the motherboard will run me more money that way

Are these two compatible?

AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz


pretty sure they are and I do have mATX case it turns out

AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz Socket AM2+


better than what I was looking at before right, and they compatible right?
