My build for Christmas


Dec 10, 2012
Here's all the part names - I am just wondering if the AMD CPU is going to be compatible with the motherboard, same goes with the fan on top of the cpu.

Zalman Z11 Plus Midi Tower Case
AMD Phenom II X4 965 - 3.4 Ghz AM3 Black Edition CPU
Asus AMD Radeon HD 6670 Graphics Card
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Asus P8Z77-V LX Motherboard
Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB 1600MHz

this is going to be my first time building a PC - and am just wondering if all these parts are compatible that I am getting with each other?
Here's the links to each part..


Power supply -



Fan -

DvD -

Motherboard -

Case/tower -

Memory/ram -

My budget is about 450 euro and everything above is 514 euros, I would appreciate help from someone experienced to pick a part out which maybe would be cheaper, I am currently with a very old system, and I am getting all this for Christmas, I never really gotten anything nice and this is my chance..

First off that is an Intel board so no that CPU will not work with the mobo you have chosen. Here is a good mobo for the CPU you have chose -

Also never never cheap out on your PSU get this one

You can cheap out and save on the ram by going with a 4gb stick or kit and it will not limit you in any way for your budget gaming rig.

The rest of your build looks fine but you could cheap out on the case as well to meat your budget a bit better.
