Compatable Hardware?

    Compatable Hardware?

    So I am thinking of building a new PC but I am a bit unsure if the following would work fine together;

    CPU: AMD Athalon x4 860k
    Motherboard: Gigabyte F2A68HM-HD2
    Ram: HyperX Fury Series 8Gb (2 x 4Gb) DDR3 1866Mhz CL10 Memory
    Graphics Card: MSI AMD R7 360 Graphics Card (2 Gb, PCI-E, GGDR5, 128Bit)
    PSU: Silence 500Watt PSU; I worked out how much I needed (450Watts) so I went for 500Watts
    HardDrive: Western Digital WD10EZEX Blue 1Tb 7200Rpm 64Mb Cache SATA 6.0
    Case: Betfenix Nova (With the glass side panel )
    OS: Really, I am not too sure but I think I will go for Windows 10 as it runs a lot more games than Linux or Mac OS X

    -Thanks, Theo

    Considering your "playing games" you better look into how impatient you are..

    Think about 4gig video memory and SSD HARD DRIVE

    You can get 250gig SSD for 84 bucks


    also what about using something like pc parts picker and see what's compatible..

    Right off the bat I'd say considering how cheap ram is right now I'd invest in at least 4GB. Everywhere else you might read is going to recommend 8GB. I'd go that route before an SSD but both will help, especially depending on what games - like if you have huge maps.

    Nice thing about brooksndun's link, and other sites, is you can get a handle on the best balance for your budget.
