-------------------------------------------
So I want to build a gaming computer. I have found all the parts I think I will need, Just unsure of compatibility. from what I know they should work together but I wanted to know before purchasing. I wouldn't mind if you find better parts for about the same price, but I'm trying not to break the bank. Side Note- I'm aware that my M/B has a Video Card in it but have heard that the video card is unreliable during gaming.

--M/B = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157309
--Power Supply = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371016
--DVD Burner = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204
--HDD = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148767
--Ram = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231421
--Processor = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103871
--Video Card = http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2898930&CatId=7387

As a final note, one thing that is really putting me off is the Video Card. The video card is PCI Express 3.0 and the motherboard is PCI Express 2.0. Is there a motherboard that is 3.0 that doesn't require me to change my whole build.

Thanks in advance, I know I'm most likely just a big dingle.

The video card you chose is no good for gaming. I'm not too sure about the processor either.

If light gaming is all you're after, then this will be fine. It will in no way be able to handle games coming out over the next year though. Cheap parts results in cheap performance.

Do you have any suggestions for a processor? The other two links were very helpful.

Thanks.

Either of those are good. I have the Phenom, I don't know much about the FX cores but I've heard they are pretty nice.

If you want a gaming computer, I strongly suggest getting an Core i5-3570K. This processor, as of today's generation, is the best bang for the buck.

Here's the link to the processor on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Core-i5-3570K-Quad-Core-Processor/dp/B007SZ0E1K/.

Here's also an article on the overall performance of the i5-3570K: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/core_i5_3570k_review,23.html.
