Sup guys, thanks for taking a look at my thread.

First time building a rig and I just wanted to make sure that everything I've selected so far is compatible.

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912

Motherboard: MSI 870A-G55 AM3 AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

GPU: MSI N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi)

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz

PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"

DVD: ASUS Black IDE DVD-ROM

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Oh, and just one more question. Do I need to buy a network adapter if I'm planning on using a Wireless Network Adapter via USB?

All the review's I've read so far have been super helpful, thanks again for taking a look!

Hello, welcome to TSF.

Looking at the components, it seems like a gaming oriented build. If this is the case, the 6 core CPU will offer you absolutely no advantage in gaming over any Quad core CPU. So I would suggest you save a few bucks and get a quad core CPU.

This one would be good:

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

One more thing. I'd go for a GIGABYTE or an ASUS motherboard, better quality than MSI boards.

Other than that, it's a solid build.

Thanks for the welcome man, glad to be here.

I had no idea that having a 6 core CPU wouldn't have an edge when it came to gaming, in that case I'll be picking up that CPU you linked for sure.

Thanks a lot for the input

Same advice as the above posts plus use a 2X2GB matched pair of RAM to get better performance and avoid any problems with 4GB RAM sticks.
WD Hdd's are top performers and the Black Series have a 5 yr. warranty.
