Hello all, I have two simple questions: Is all this hardware compatible? Also, does thermal paste come packaged with one of these products?

If you have any suggestions/changes to these, please tell me, but keep the overall price under $1300. I'm building my first comp, and I don't want to mess up >_> Thank you for reading this.

Why wouldnt they be?

Also, does thermal paste come packaged with one of these products?


maybe, maybe not

The processor should come with thermal paste. Otherwise, I think its pretty cheap to buy seperatley.

Replacement fans/heat sinks come with it as well.

It seems compatible to me. I know almost nothing about RAM compatibility, and I assume a case that can hold an Extended ATX Mobo can hold a regular ATX as well. Processor and Vid card work with the mobo...seems like a good case...Just one suggestion:

If you can find it, I would go with a ViewSonic Professional Series P95f+ Monitor. It's 19 inches (18" viewing area), has the same 3x and 4x brightness button, but it can support 1280x1040 res at 87Hz, and it goes all the way up to some crazy 2000x1600 business (don't really know what). This really depends on how much screen area you want. I also think games (I assume you will be gaming with that vid card) and other graphic things look better at higher resolution.

The monitor you have is great, I just personally like higher resolution. I have also found that it is hard to find the model I mentioned (I didn't find it on newegg last week)

Ok, thanks. Sorry if I sound dumb, but I'm extremely ignorant when it comes to hardware.
