Heya all!

I've been planning to get a new computer for a while, but I keep spending my pay instead of saving it, lol... I was wondering if the below parts will work together?
If you're interested in the specs, just click the url next to it...

Now I only want to know if they will work well together, not a "better" substitute, because I have a VERY small budget here... The main thing I'm worried about is the Motherboard, as I had to change it because the last one didn't have an AGP slot (I'm not buying a new video card atm, so I want one with AGP).

Thanks again, all!

Motherboard: ASUS P4S800-MX - SiS661FX 2DD 3P SHARE VGA
Information Link

Case: ATX Midi Tower Case W/ 400W Pent IV PSU and Front USB Silver
Information Link

RAM: Corsair 512MB PC-3200 (400MHz) DDRAM "VALUE SELECT" (USA) C3
Information Link

Chip: INTEL CELERON 330/ 2.66Ghz/ 533Mhz FSB/ PRESCOTT/ 256K CACHE
Information Link

HDD: Western Digital 80Gb WD800LB/BB Caviar 7200RPM ATA100
Information Link

Vid Card: ABIT Radeon 9200SE-DT AGP 8X/4X 128MB DDR DVI
This is already bought, it works well for me atm, so I'm just going to move it over.


THANKS AGAIN! That's all that I'm "buying" (other then that Vid Card), the rest I already have...

you need a cd drive to install windows. I know you don't want to change parts because of the budget but celerons are kind of becoming obsolete. You could have got an athlon for the same price although i prefer intel

I would def. make the move from celeron to AMD- amd is much cheaper then intel and you can overclock to get the most out of your moeny (be careful, it can ruin your system - see pinned posts for more information) if you do choose AMD tho, you will need a new mobo- so first we gotta find you a processer, you could get the amd 64 3000+ http://www.tigerdire...p?EdpNo=1170066 there or the AMD Athlon™ XP 3000+ Processor http://www.tigerdire...sp?EdpNo=513326 -both in the ballpark of your other processer- if you do change that though you will need a new motherboard, please let us know which processer you will like to go with and then we can help you choose a new motherboard :tazz:
