Can't see your wishlist unless it's shared.


Either way, since you're building a system from scratch, use a Mo Board with an Intel chipset and Intel processor. The components on this page represent the most compatible components.


Also, look at the signatures of people with 100% successful builds.

Nice setup. I am using the same motherboard that you have selected. I am jealous on the price, I think mine cost me $20 more. Just for comparison here is what I went with:


Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3R

CPU: Intel Quad Core Q9450

Memory: 8 GB Gskill PC2-1066 (I have had great luck with Gskill)

Video: Gigabyte Radeon HD 3870 (always used Nvidia, wanted to try something different)


I only went with the Intel Quad Core because I was able to get it locally for $249, otherwise I was considering the same CPU you selected or the E8400. Good luck and let us know how it goes...
