  1. Hi,guys.
    So I am building a PC.I was thinking of taking a MSI FM2 A75MA E35 as my motherboard but it is very hard to come across by,esspecially in Croatia.I am wondering is this motherboard compatible with my system?
    MSI FM2 A75MA P33
    with this system:
    AMD Athlon X4 760K-CPU
    EVGA GTX 750TI 2 GB GDDR5-GPU
    Corsair Vengeance 8 GB 1600 Mhz-RAM
    NZXT Source 210 or 220-Case
    Corsair CX430 430W-PSU

    Sorry for my english.
    Thanks in advance. ;)

    Nice build. Any FM2 motherboard should be compatible with the CPU. Make sure you buy a motherboard with the A85X chipset since that allows for maximum overclocking. I recommend maybe upping the PSU to about 550W or more just to be safe. The GPU requires a 300W, but with a 100W CPU and a few other components, it could easily overrun the 430W.

    Would 500W cut it?
    Corsair CX500 maybe?

    And about A85XA chipset I won t be overclocking componets and it is quite more expensive than A75MA so I think I will go forA75MA.
    Thanks anyway.

    Sure!

    I have a CX600 that would power two 760's.
