Compatability Check

  1. I came here for help on my first build and the support I got from a few members was immense so here I am again. That was about a year ago and since then my PSU blew out and murdered my motherboard. :suspiciou

    I've compiled everything I need and just need clarification to ensure what I have chosen is fine. If it's not there then I didn't need it.

    PSU -
    CPU -
    Memory -
    Mobo -

    As we currently have two dead computers in the house my parents will also be needing one. I plan to get them the E8400 and simply switch it with mine. I'll also do the same and get them a nice CPU cooler and graphics card. Take it from theres and replace with mine. :p

    The total of that comes to £350 and I really don't want to spend any more.

    Thanks in advanced for any advice.

    Billy. :cool:

    I found all that you take is fine... And if it don't cost you a lot its good but you need to verify if that you are combining with the new one will be compatible...

    I recommend changing the PSU to this. It's cheaper and provides much more power than the HX520, but is not modular, so if you're looking for a modular PSU, the HX520 is the better buy.
    Everything else looks fine.
