Hi guys !

I'm new here, so figured i'd introduce myself :)

I'm Dan, i'm 20 and live in Newcastle. I work at a Software Development Company as a technical author - but currently looking at the products developed by the company, looking to move to a more support based role in the future :)

I'm looking to build up a pc, and i've been given the following parts - would it work together with no compatibility issues ? And also would you recommend replacing any with any other pieces?

The parts are as follows:

Everything looks fine except for the motherboard, this motherboard is a better one because of it's newer chipset.

Appreciated ! Thankyou very much for that one !

A mate of mine advised me to go for this one which is slightly cheaper: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-409-GI

Any opinions?

Cheers,

The difference between Killer's board and your friend's is that one is 990FX and the other 970. The 970 is a basic or core chipset with the 990FX adding more features. The primary difference between the two lies with Crossfire/SLI, but if you aren't going to be using that, a 970-based board will suffice. You can further save some cash by going to an FX-8120 if it is available. The hardware between an 8150 and 8120 is the same, just one is clocked higher. You can also lower your RAM down to 1333 or 1600 since AMD system default to 1333 and there isn't much difference in regards to real-world performance. You can still get the faster RAM, but the board will default to the fastest "Standard" speed, typically 1333. The BenQ is good, I used one of their monitors for a few years and like them. I've moved away from TN-based monitors over to IPS for increased quality, but they usually are a bit more expensive.
