Quick list (without SATA cables, wireless adapter, etc.):
MSI AM3 AMD 870 125W-CPU Support 2 PCIEx16/1 PCIEx1/3 PCI 870-G45 ATX Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto 3.2 GHz
Thermaltake W0070RUC TR2 Series 430W Power Supply with 2 Fans
Kingston Technology ValueRAM 4 GB Desktop Memory (x2)
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500 GB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s
Cooler Master Elite 310 ATX, MATX Mid Tower Case with Window
I am aware of the following:
1. No integrated graphics on the chosen mobo, and no graphics card included (I will be using a graphics card from another computer I already have, the Sapphire Radeon HD4650)
2. No keyboard, mouse, monitor, or optical drive (again, already have these from other computers and parts hanging around)
3. No OS (will be using Ubuntu)
4. The hard drive is 6GB/s, but the motherboard has no 6GB/s ports (I just picked this hard drive because it was the capacity I wanted for the best price, and I already have one that I find works very well)
Will these components work together? If so (and I know this can vary), will I get good performance with this combo? Note that there are 2 4GB sticks of RAM, so that is 8GB. I plan to use this PC for making web sites, schoolwork, some music, and watching some online video. I will not be using it for any gaming, so I figure I shouldn't need anything fancier than what I have here.
