Are These PC Parts Compatible With One Another?


Jun 26, 2009
Pretty much I was wanting to know if this build will work for a higher end gaming computer for ~$1400 (w/ Tax, etc.) By that I mean will all the parts work together in the case I picked out, if so I was also wanting to know what Cooler Fan I should get for the i7 Processor to keep the temps low. Any comments would be greatly appreciated, Thank You.

Thank You for your suggestions, and with the Scythe MUGEN-2 you recommended do you know if it will have any problems fitting in my case? If it does have problems will NewEgg let me exchange it for another? Thanks
