i recently got my hands on a HP Compaq 6000 Pro microtower. anyway, thereisnt much to talk aabout inside right now, but i have an oppurtunity to get my hands on a few parts. im just not sure if they will fit/or work on the board or which would be the best way to go. i plan on using it for gaming, specifically- WOW, COD. not trying to make aa super awesome pc, just pretty good. that being said, heres the parts im thinking about getting. not real sure if this will even work on that board. AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core 32/64 Bit Processor - $50

Core Zambezi Processor FX 4130 Black Edition Operating Frequency 3.8GHz Turbo Speed 3.9GHz Number of Cores Quad-Core not sure about this ram, all i know is that the pc does run ddr3, just not sure if this is compatable . Corsair Vengeance 8gb ddr3 ram BRAND NEW! - $60 and finally theres these 3 video cards. all 3 seem pretty cool, but if im gonna get 1, then i want to be happy with it. 1. ASUS NVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti GDDR5 1GB - $60 2. EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 650 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express Video Card - $65 3. Brand: DIAMOND Model: 6850PE51G

if anyone out there can give me a little input on these parts, like if they will even work on the pc and/or if they are simply not worth the money , and which i should go with would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys!!!

You used the word "Microtower".

That means that space inside will be very limited and only specially designed products will fit.

That is probably why no one has answered you.
