Need help of confirmation of compatibility


Feb 25, 2014
Ok guys, I have finally started putting money in the bank, and VERY soon I will also start ordering my parts for my pc (please see my older thread to see full documentation etc.) I would call my self a computer guy with knowledge but I'm no EXPERT. When I spend the cash i worked my ass off for, I like to know what I'm buying will work. I have now made changes to my previous build and i need a confirmation of compatibility. The new case I am getting is

further info here

Now my ONLY concern is that it will not fit in 2 graphics cards, the following is the new motherboard im after (confident on this one) and it should fit in 2 graphics cards fine

My current GPU is a Nvidia GT240 and I am seeking (will buy this in a month or so)

That GPU is a little expensive for me but it definitely looks worth the $$$ so I will save up for that over the weeks. Also I'd like to know if those 2 GPU's are completely compatible with one-another and if I'd be able to run PS4 titles such as Watch Dogs and BF4 on low settings at acceptable FPS. Everyone keeps hating on the GT240 and are saying that it is a VERY LOW END GPU, well I have used it for a while and all i can say is that it can run games such as Just Cause 2 on mid-high settings (AA off, reflection on mid) VERY WELL; even though at times i get a fps drop of like 10 for about 2 seconds, it still holds well at 25-40 fps and the game is graphically demanding in my opinion; also Batman arkham city runs smooth (you cant change much graphical settings on that game). Also from my last post of my CPU selection, only now after really researching it have I realised i was an id**t to believe that the CPU would do me any good.

That was the CPU i was going to buy. After researching my own current CPU, I have decided to keep it, it is a

or you can look at

So basically yeah guys, I would just like to know if everything will work with one another (by the way my PSU is 650w) and thats pritty much it. Thank you VERY MUCH for any replies;

Thanks again,




The GTX 650TI isn't much of an improvement over a GT 240. If you have a flexible budget for your GPU you want at minimum a GTX 750TI or a Radeon HD R7 260, both should be about the same price as the GT 650. If you post the website you're buying from I can suggest a better GPU for your budget.

It will all be compatible, but I'm a bit confused with your graphics cards.

Those two graphics cards can not be run "together" in SLI mode. They can both be installed if your motherboard has two PCIex16 slots, but they cannot be "connected" to boost your graphics. Instead of a GTX 650, I recommend a GTX 750. They are the same price but the GTX 750 is more power efficient and more powerful.

I believe all of those are compatible, and yes your mobo is SLI compatible. However, you cannot SLI a GT 210 with a GTX 650. Since they are not the same chipset they will not work together. Also, the processor you plan on getting is kinda low-end, even for a budget build. Here's what I would recommend going with if you can afford it. If not, let us know what country you live in and how much you can spend. Also, if you want to SLI then and want updated hardware, I would recommend buying a single 760 and doing an SLI later once you get more money to buy another one--

I also added in a second GTX 760 to show you what kind of money it would look like to buy all the parts at once.

Good luck with getting your parts! :D
