Solved

I'm thinking about building my first pc but need help.

My current gaming laptop is beginning getting really old and have trouble keeping up with the newer games, so i thought i wanted to build my first gaming pc, but the problem is i have no clue about what to do.

I searched around the internet and found this build:

- Intel Core i5 6600K / 3.5 GHz Skylake
- MSI H81M-P33 Motherboard
- Kingston HyperX FURY 8GB DDR3 Ram 1866 MHz
- Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB

I know i need a power supply, but i don't know what i kind of power supply i need. I looked at the NZXT Source S340 Elite but i don't know if the parts will fit.

I don't know if there is anything i'm missing, so please tell me if there is.

  1. Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB needs 300 watt or greater power supply.

    Motherboard/CPU are not compatible. Two different socket sizes. LGA 1150 .vs LGA 1151

    Would you suggest i find another motherboard or cpu?

    Hey. First of all, im new aswell to this pc building thing. But here is some things i've learned so far. IF im right, intel doesn't support DDR3 memory. So you'd have to buy DDR4 memory and a motherboard that supports DDR4. This is the motherboard im going to get for my build https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157685 (im going to get the i5-6600). Hope these help you.

  4. Try pcpartpicker.com. it's the easiest way to find parts that are compatible with each other. It's also great to see where you can save extra money on stuff so you can afford the best possible gpu. Also, for a new build a don't see a reason not to go for a kaby lake processor. They're the most optimized and should cost about the same. Go for the i5 7600k.
