Hello! My current computer is getting a little old and I wanted to build a new one some time in the future and needed to know if the items I show here are everything I need and if they are good to go so the computer will work properly.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

MSI 970-ATX-AMD 970 Motherboard

Intel Core i5 3.2 GHz Quad Core

EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2 GB

Cooler Master CMP 350 Mid Tower 500 Watt

Corsair Vengeance 8 GB 2 x 4 1600 MHz

Samsung Super Write Master SH-224DB Internal

Seagate Desktop HDD Internal 3.5" 7200 Rpm 1tb

Cooler Master Hyper N520 RR-920-N520-GP processor cooler

Please let me know if this would come together perfectly or if I need some changes. Sorry if some of this might be wrong but I'm not too good with building computers yet, I'm still learning. Please let me know and I will be very thankful.

Hi, welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

The motherboard you selected is for AMD processors, an Intel processor can't be used with it.

 

I'd recommend trying out pcpartpicker, you can try out builds and their compatability filter will only let you pick parts that go together. http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/

You can get an AMD processor to replace the Intel one.  I would swap out the motherboard for the GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P and get one of the FX CPU's, such as the FX-8370, FX-8350, or the FX-8320.

What exactly is the new build?  PCPartPicker isn't bad, but it isn't a substitute for actually doing research to understand why a part may or may not be a good choice.

What is your new computer build budget?

 

I might be able to give you a list of good computer components that will work well together.

The list will include pricing.
