More about gaming knowing parts compatible
  1. PCpartpicker would tell you if there are any incompatibilities.
  2. They should be compatible. How much RAM do you have (Link doesn't work for me) and I'd recommend getting a Radeon R9 280x over a GTX 770. It has 3gb VRAM and will max all games at 1080p

    What do you mean when you say link didn't work for you?
  4. I get a 404 error. How much RAM is that though?

    2 * 4gb so 8 gbs of ram

    It says 2*8 up top but I meant to put 2*4
  6. Best answer
    Oh ok because 16gb would be a waste of money. I would recommend getting a R9 280X over a 770 because they both perform about the same, but the 280x has more VRAM so VRAM-hungry games will be able to run at max settings
  7. Looks like a good build, should be happy w/ it ;) Let us know how the build goes.
