Are these two parts compatible (urgent)? Topic: Buy computer case screws
June 17, 2019 / By Clements
Question: I'm doing my first build for a gaming computer and I can save $50 if I buy this power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341018 But I'm not sure if its compatible with my AMD FX-4170 Zambezi 4.2GHz, and my ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ motherboard. The sale ends on the 31st (Aug2012). So any help would be greatly appreciated. Other info: GTX 660 ti Corsair Vengeance 16gb OCZ Vertex 128gb SSD Samsung Spinpoint 7200rpm 1tb NZXT Phantom Mid Case

As long as your parts, case, MB, etc. are ATX then everything will fit. ATX is the standard desktop format and any ATX power supply (which is most or all) will just screw in.

It should work fine as long as they are the same standard/protocol etc. You won't be able to put an AGP card in a PCI slot, etc. So know his parts and what your computer is compatible with. DDR2 RAM is, for example, backward compatible. So if you have a DDR2-667 and he has a DDR2-800 it will work at the DDR2-667 speed. However, if you are using DDR2-800 and you slap his DDR2-667 your memory will work at the lower speed. However, you won't be able to slap SD-RAM, Rambus RAM, EDO RAM, etc into a DDR2. Power supply should not be an issue as long as it's the same type (i.e. has the same connectors). Video card will not matter as long as you match the slots. Audio card definitely doesn't matter but make sure you don't have a better one already built-in or installed. If you're replacing the Mobo too and all the other parts, you pretty much are just taking his old computer and keeping the case right? But if he's keeping the processor you might have issues too... Parts are made to be interchangeable (with the above caveats). It's hard to be more specific without you giving us more specifics.

I can't answer that question without more information. The memory that was in the DELL might work, but it might not. It all depends on if the new motherboard he buys supports the same type of memory. If he is upgrading, then it will probably be a newer version of RAM and will be incompatible. The hard drives will work fine. The Heatsink may or may not work as well. If it is the same one, then it will probably work fine as long as the motherboard is compatible with that processor. If it is a different processor, it will have a different retention mechanism and it may not be able to dissipate enough heat to cool a hotter running CPU.

Yes it is compatible with this system, the power draw is not on the processor but the graphic card in which the psu meet the minimum requirements , and have the right connectors for the graphic card , 2 pci-e power pin connectors , and power up the rest of the system

This power supply seem to be quite compatible with the other hardwares . I think new egg is too expensive though. Because it seem to be on a special sale there for $90, while you can get it at amazon for $81. See this link >> http://amzn.to/O46iHF

You have to add the person you want to talk to.. there is a little green + sign near the top of the main windows messenger screen, and then ya have to type in their address.. and then when they come online they have to acceot your invite.
