post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone, I am very new to building a computer and wasn't quite sure where to put this but just wanted to know if my parts will all be compatable.

MoBo- Asus M4A88T-V

CPU- Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Quad Core CPU

GPU- EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti

RAM- Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B Vengeance Desktop Memory Kit - 8GB (2x 4GB), PC3-12800, DDR3-1600MHz, 9-9-9-24 CAS Latency, Intel XMP Ready, Unbuffered

I have a 650watt power supply, DVD drive, Case, And hard drive, Thanks for the help

They are all fit.

Your motherboard is AM3 socket same as your CPU.

I'm not sure if it can use with AM3+ CPU like Bulldozer or not, depends on newer BIOS or physically unsupported.

Everything looks good. But, I will make a recommendation for future PC build planning.

The most often overlooked component in PC building is memory selection. It is a good idea to pick a motherboard you are happy with based on it's features and abilities, then to look for the QVL list and find memory that has already been tested as 'compatible' with the board.

In most situations there should be no problems picking up just 'any old kit' for memory but some boards can be especially picky.

ddr3 is way less picky than ddr/ddr2 boards were
most (non oem) boards will have voltage and timing settings to make it compatable

the 880 boards have onboard video, get a 870 or 970/990 board instead
