Are My Parts Compatible?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm building a PC for the first time, and although I've done plenty of research I still need a more experienced builder to double check my list for compatibility issues, or general problems with the items I intend to use on my gaming build.

Here's the list:

Thank you.

Yes they are all compatible.

But do you really need a 2600k and DDR3 2200 ram?

You would need a 2600k if you are doing work that involves a lot of encoding and so on.

If you are only going to play games and doing minor encoding or photo editing than go with a 2500k.

DDR3 2200, is there a reason you need ram like this? Only PC enthusiasts fully benefit from this because they set bench records.

As for the hard drive, its a good hdd but take a look at this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185 . Personally I think the Samsung spin point is better.

Everything looks compatible to me!

My only suggestions are to get a Samsung F3 instead of that Barracuda, and to invest in a good 1600MHz kit of RAM, like these, instead of that overly expensive 2200MHz kit.

Edit:
I've been ninja'd!

I overkilled on the RAM and CPU because I figure it will let my PC keep up with the constant graphical advances in games, but will it actually make a difference in it's longevity?

A 2500k with 1600MHz RAM would be the most cost effective route for a gaming build. As of now, most games use between 2 and 3 cores. I doubt this will change anytime soon. Also, you will notice little (if any) difference between 1600MHz RAM and 2200MHz RAM now, and most likely in the future (at least for gaming).

I understand your thinking, it's the same exact reason why I purchased an i7 instead of an i5 for my build. However, for your purposes a well-rounded, gaming oriented rig would be best.

Thanks. I'll probably go for the RAM you recommended, as it's a heck of a lot cheaper.

Make sure you take a look at the samsung f3.

You made a good choice that you went with the p8p67 deluxe.

Here are some motherboard comparisons, http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...omparison.html .

Yeah, it made sense to go with a more expensive motherboard as it seems like the second that goes out of date you're screwed, but concerning the HDD, isn't SATA 6.0 Gb/s superior to SATA 3.0 Gb/s?

Your system is all compatible, however the RAM would be a bad pick for you as the Sandy Bridge does not support 2200MHz, however if you decide to buy the RAM anyways you would have to downgrate them to 2133MHz. I would tho rather buy 2133MHz over the 2200MHz you found yaself there.

My suggestion to you, would to find some 1600MHz instead, youll save some money and won't get any problems setting up your computer.

Edit: Also your cooler, i would suggest you to take the Antec Kühler H2O 620 over the Corsair H50, its about 8$ more. However its cooling performance is way better due to the fact that its using better fans, 3rd generation cold plates (H50 uses 2nd Generation) and it has more flexible tubes, would be way easier to mount anywhere youd like.
