I put together a parts list for a new comp. However the link below shows there are compatibility issues. Does this mean I need to use other parts?

Can't I use 960 Evo for SSD? It looks at faster than 850 Evo on paper at least.

meh, it causes compatibility issues, if you go my way, you can fit in a 1080 or something into the budget ;)

Are you sure you want a full tower? They are huge.

I am fine with something smaller...I mainly want a really quiet pc without water cooling. Any suggestion?

What do you plan on using the system for, and what is your Budget ?

wang1433 submitter 1 point 6 months ago

I am building a gaming pc that I can also use for work (Words, Excel, Outlook etc.)

The pc should be able to play all the latest titles at 1080p, and needs to be super quiet when doing light work.

I just want it to be very quiet and reliable. I have no interest in overclocking.

I can pay up to $2,000 but I don't want to spend more than my above needs.

There is not really any compatibility issue. You have to see it like this. Some motherboards use "wireless" connection to connect a m.2 to the sata port.

You have a max of... sata ports, thats the max amount of hdd's you can connect.

I think some higher end motherboards do not have this issue. But its not really a problem unless you want to have a lot of hdd's
