Just to make sure I'm not gonna do anything stupid, I guess. Because I've made mistakes in part lists before...

I'm restricted heavily by stock availability and delivery prices (a lot of stuff that looks like it'd be a better deal turns out to not be, because the shipping is so much, and so I've tried to combine shipping where possible), so I think this is the best option, but I could be wrong.

As mentioned in the part list description, the 6870 is actually a factory overclocked 6970 that I have lying around. I figure that's better than the integrated graphics (don't need OpenGL 4.5 or Vulkan just yet, although I want to have the ability to upgrade to a new card later when I can afford it.). That's why the PSU is a lot more than the part list says the power requirement is, and also because I don't trust PSUs.

The logic behind the CPU cooler is just that I have it already (not being used for anything, long story short it's from an older build that no longer works), and I figure I might as well go with that over the stock cooler, because it's probably better. Hopefully no more difficult to install.

RAM is just the cheapest I can find at a local store for now (hence manually entered price), until I feel the need to upgrade it.

I figure I should be fine with that old SSD rather than getting new storage.

Everything else is just peripherals and software I just felt like adding to the part list even though it doesn't require me purchasing anything and doesn't really affect compatibility.

I mean with the mentioned restrictions you have, I don't see anything with the build itself.]

Everything should be compatible.

4GB memory? What is this build for?
