New Build Compatibility

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I am about to order parts for a new build. PC Part Picker says compatibility is good but I have come here for reassurance. Could you please have a look at my parts list and let me know if this is all good. I am mostly concerned about the compatibility of the Motherboard with the GPU and Wi-fi Card. I may also use the MSI MPG X570 GAMING EDGE motherboard so if you could let me know if this board is also compatible.

Yes everything is compatible, but IMO the build isn't very well-balanced. You're spending a lot on a motherboard and comparatively little on a GPU. Not to mention you're spending a bunch on aesthetics which you could use for more performance instead.

Ok, what would you change apart from the two fans and keyboard as I already have them.

Don't get an MSI X570 board, they're not good.

I'd get a better cooler. That one again isn't that good.

Pay a little more and get a 1TB SSD.

Do you know of a good motherboard like the X570-P but one that is black as I am going for black theme?

You can search PCPartPicker for them. They have an excellent sorting feature.
