Check out pcpartpicker.com. It will let you pick parts and then it will tell you if they are compatible or not. You can even sort them by value so you can pick the most expensive one everytime
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"
