Alright, I know this is my first post so don't know if I will get much help but here it goes...

Ok, so I just got a free computer, a Gateway GT4016. Here's the specs, http://www1.dealtime...4016-Desktop-PC

I just had a few hundred bucks to work with so here's what I came up with...



MOBO: ASRock K10N78M AM3/AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 8100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

VGA: EVGA 512-P3-N977-TR GeForce 9800 GT Superclocked Edition 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

PSU: LOGISYS Computer PS575XBK 575W ATX12V SLI Ready Power Supply

CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor

RAM: PQI TURBO 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PQI26400-2GDB



Please keep in mind, this is the first build I've done, I got everything according to a 300 dollar budget, from my homework I see no issues, but I am not sure. That's why I am here. What I am most concerned about is the RAM voltage, I am wondering if it's sufficient to POST and the use of the old HD. Also note, I do NOT plan on overclocking. I will be using the ATA(or PATA? Can't remember)HD, case, and other small parts.

Thanks for looking!

Hey mate, sorry for the delay. Everything looks pretty good to me, although I strongly recommend upgrading to a better PSU.
