I just want to be sure that all the parts like the RAM and the motherboard are compatible before I go ahead and buy the parts.
The computer will be used for 3d modling, animation and game design as well as school work and playing games like Crysis but this is all on a tight budget so if you can recomend any places I can get these parts cheap that would be helpful Thanks
The E8400 is a good CPU. I have one and love it. If you're looking at doing graphic design and the likes, you may want to go for a quad core, as a lot of those applications benefit from the additional cores.
