So i like may other people have decided to create my own computer for gaming purposes. this has been a dream of mines for years now and im finally doing it. But with all the stuff there is out there and the new words and numbers i dont understand, its been kinda confusing what is compatible with what and i can use some help. My budget is about 700 but i wanna try to stay around 600 if possible.

Here's all the stuff i plan to buy

MotherBoard: GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD3-B3 LGA 1155 P67 ATX Motherboard

Graphics card: Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 1GB

CPU: Intel Core i3 550 3.2 ghz

RAM: Crucial 4GB DDR3-1333 (PC-10666) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 2GB Memory Modules)

Harddrive: Western Digital WD5001AALS Caviar Black Hard Drive - 500GB, 7200 rpm, 32MB, SATA-3G

Power supply:Antec TruePower New TP-650 650W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply

Hi brandon36996 :)
MB http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128476 Socket LGA 1155 is the updated version of LGA 1156.
CPU http://www.ebuyer.com/product/200934 Socket LGA 1156 is the predecessor of the LGA 1155
The CPU and MB are incompatible I'm afraid, this is the cheapest CPU for your proposed MB http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115078
