:welcome:    unitate,

 

Basic but not high end gaming as the CPU and video card are not the best, a good quad core CPU and a decent 2GB 256-bit video card would be better, if you tell us what particular games you wish to play it will help.

 

The MB, CPU and the video card are all good compatibility wise but we cannot confirm if the Ram is as there is not enough information, can you post the brand and model name or number of the Ram so that we can check it out, better still if you provide a link.

 

Some concerns and guidance;

 

There is not enough information to found regarding the case, your MB is the smaller mATX size and the case listed as ATX, from the information that I could find it was not stated whether or not a mATX MB would fit.

 

The PSU, power supplies bundled with lesser/unknown brand cases are mostly of poor quality and cannot be trusted.

 

As there is so little information available about the case and PSU I would strongly suggest that you select alternatives, it may cost a little more but you will have guaranteed compatibility and quality instead of the potential for your new hardware being fried, suggestions here

 

Your aftermarket cooler, a very important thing I must make you aware of is that you do not need the additional heatsink and CPU fan and if you did use it you would void your CPU warranty both AMD and Intel are clear on this, see below;

 


AMD;

This Limited Warranty shall be null and void if the AMD microprocessor which is the subject of this Limited Warranty is used with any heatsink/fan other than the one provided herewith.

Intel;

damage to the Product due to external causes, including  accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions,  misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper  testing;

Full Intel article available @ http://www.intel.com/support/processors/sb/cs-009862.htm

 

 

You do not have an OS such as Windows 7 or 8/81 on your list, what will you be using.

And what about this one? campatibility and a good gaming PC build?

That is a better list of hardware but again a couple of pointers;

 

The MB is the smaller mATX type and this can be a problem when it comes to today's video cards as they can be quite long, most cards take up the space of two slots on the MB meaning that space can be tight, I suggest a full ATX size board is used.

 

The video card requires a PSU with a minimum output of 500W so the Corsair while the correct choice of brand it is not powerful enough + to protect your hardware it must be a minimum of bronze rated.

 

You have included an aftermarket cooler again, are you not concerned about voiding the CPU warranty, I would suggest that you use the stock cooler that is supplied with the CPU, if you are not happy with the coolers performance you can then purchase a third party cooler, avoid liquid cooling as it comes with the risk of leaks that can destroy all of your hardware + it involves maintenance that would not normally be required and every time that you open up the case there is a risk of damage to your hardware, also worth mentioning is that only extreme overclockers require liquid cooling due to the much higher temperatures that are generated, this type of user is not concerned about voiding their CPU warranty as they just start again if they fry their hardware.

 

An alternative list of parts built around your choice of CPU, see what you think and get back to us, unitate list we can swap and change any item/s on the list until you are happy.

 

Just a cautionary note, unless your OS disk is the full retail edition you cannot use it with a new MB as an OEM disk is tied to the original MB it was paired with, to use an OEM disk with a new MB is software piracy and therefore illegal;

 

Exceptions to the above are 1: If your MB is replaced under warranty and 2: If your MB is replaced out of warranty with an alternative type but same brand due to the original model no longer being available, an upgraded MB however will require the purchase of a new OS licence.

 

If you have a full retail disk and a product key that is not in use on another computer the OEM restriction/s is/are not the same.

 

No need to quote my replies btw  :thumbsup:
