First Built Buying Soon

Any recommendations?

Is the Geforce 8800 GTX compatible with this?

Also, is the motherboard going to fix into this case I'm buying?

The MoBo should fit. GTX 750 would work better than a GTX 8800. and the PSU is OVERKILL. try a Corsair CX430. Cheers.

why is the power supply over kill?

I am thinking about buying this video card for this mother board, is it compatible? I don't see it listed on this website when I searched for it

ZOTAC ZT-60210-10L GeForce GT 640 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card

The reason that the PSU is overkill is that you are only pulling 233W and you have a 750W PSU. It COULD blow out your system after some time if you are supplying too much power. the Corsair CX430 supply's 430W and is about $39.99USD. one of my favorites

Doesnt have the greatest review.

Also a general rule of thumb is to always spend more (around 50% more) on a GPU then on the CPU. which is why i suggested in your other thread that you use the 6300 and the R9 270x. It miles ahead of the 8350 and the GT 640. And a 8800 gtx is really really old now. The FX-6300, R9 270X combo are about the same price too.

Most gaming is more dependant on the GPU then the CPU for graphics. were getting to a point in gaming where (unless on rare occasion) the CPU is just completely being ignored. But too small a CPU and bottlenecks can occure. basically the main componant here is the GPU and all the CPU needs to do is keep up on demand. Yes CPUs have their place, they still carry the computer on all other functions, but for a gaming pc, the CPU is more or less ignored. But i stress there still are games coming out that prefer the CPU over the GPU.

Thats why the Fx-6300 & R9 270x is such a good combo at the moment. The R9 270x is anough GPU to play most triple A games at 1080p, med/high and 50-60 FPS pretty consistantly. But when normal functions are needed or when a more CPU intensive game comes along the Fx-6300s 6 3.5 mhz cores are more then anough to carry the load. Also bear in mind that the 3.5 can be increased to around 4.0-4.1 pretty easily with a better cooler. Sitting in at around £200 or less for the pair atm is one of the best deals currently going. The R9 270x alone is £200 at amazon when not on a deal, now that it's at £119... just wooooow. Incredible for this price range.

You probably should have mentioned that :D

Almost all PCs at this price range are intended for budget game builds.
