so A friend of mine asked me to help him build a new PC. so far I've got the following.

AMD Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition
Gigabyte GA-MA770 UD3 ATX AM2 /AM3
Sapphire Radeon HD 4830
G.SKILL F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ PC2 6400 4GB
LG GH22NS30 Black DVD RW
Samsung 250GB HDD
Antec Sonata 3 w/500W PSU
ATI 4830

Now he just ordered this stuff, but I decided to post anyway so he has a chance to cancel and change his order. I just would like to confirm all these parts are compatible.

NCIX.com - Buy AMD Power of Black Bundle Deal Athlon X2 7850 2.8GHZ & Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 DDR2 Motherboard - 7850-GA-MA770-UD3 In Canada.

You may want to consider this deal, you get a better processor at an better price and get a hd4770, it perform better and consomme less energy.

hmm, never heard of the 4770? I'm a newbie myself, I've always thought it goes 4830>4850>4870>4890?

4770 came out about a week or two ago. It uses GDDR5 and performs roughly on par with the 4850, but less noise, heat and energy consumption for about 130 Canadian.
