Can someone tell me if this is all compatible? If something is not, can you replace it with something from amazon that is pretty close to it so it will be compatible.  THX a bunch.

Compatible yes but not very good choices:


- CPU: Quite slow CPU for LGA1150 socket. And LGA1150 is absolete anyway.

- MB: As previous, old obsolete socket.

- MEM: CPU officially supports max 1600 MHz memory

- Case: OK


- SSD: Kingston's V300 drives quality is poor, better to pick something else.


So I would change everything except case and PSU. Total budget is? And this computer will be for what use?

I think if your only after streaming and watching movies, why dont you switch to AMD? You can get a far better performing AMD CPU and motherboard then that outdated intel CPU  and motherboard. 



Primary system: Motherboard: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3, Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 945, Memory: 16 gigs of Patriot G2 DDR3 1600, Video: AMD Sapphire Nitro R9 380, Storage: 1 WD 500 gig HD, 1 Hitachi 500 gig HD, and Power supply: Coolermaster 750 watt, OS: Windows 10 64 bit. 

Media Center: Motherboard: Gigabyte mp61p-S3, Processor: AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+, Memory: 6 gigs Patriot DDR2 800, Video: Gigabyte GeForce GT730, Storage: 500 gig Hitachi, PSU: Seasonic M1211 620W full modular, OS: Windows 10.
