If someone can be so kind to make sure that the parts I am buying are compatible with each other, that would be awesome!
Here is my list of parts:
Motherboard: ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67
CPU: Intel Core i3-2100 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz
PSU: COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600
GPU: PowerColor AX6870 1GBD5-2DH Radeon HD 6870
RAM: G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200
CD/DVD Burner: ASUS 24X DVD Burner
OS: Windows 7 64-bit (Undecided on version)
Should I bite the bullet and spend extra to get i5-2500?
Is 600w PSU enough, or do I have to get something bigger?
And is there a cheaper modular PSU?
Should I buy a cheaper graphics card and buy a better one later?
I haven't found the right case yet.
I did considered getting RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WB, but I read that RAIDMAX's cases aren't that good even though reviews are nice on newegg. And I it seems that a lot of cases cant fit a ATI 6870. I'd my the case to have front, top, back and/or side fan that is under $90 that is good. It doesn't necessarily have to have all fans on it out of box, I can buy after market fans later.
Advice is very welcomed!
