Well its all compatible, on the mobo though i would go for nforce 4 ultra or ati 200 chipsets those being the newest and most feature packed. The cpu is an old core came out just before the winchesters i think and was in 754 before 939 as well its new equivalent is the san diego, the clawhammer lacks alot of the features that are now standard on the venice and san diego cores and isnt as capable overclocking as the newer more efficient cores. The PSU is a little on the small side but shoul be fine i would always aim for 450W though so you have a bit of room for error/upgrading. The hard drive is fine i the seagates are god drives although ill never forgive seagate for my last drive that rutured and leaked all over my pc. The ram and video card are good choices, check out patriot ram it seems to be the best brand to emerge in the pc3200 market.

Go for the PSU http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817148012


I just used it to build a friends SLI setup and it is SPOT ON....great bang for the buck :tazz:



Your motherboard doesnt support sata2..


motherboard I would choose for a budget. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813130492

I would go for this (single hardrive) http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822144235


Im a Raid0 lover so I would split the difference and buy 2 smaller drives and run raid ;)

No just get that motherboard in the non sli version. Its just the same soo you basically want the same as mine. Tests show that raid 0 doesnt give you a massive advantege over the advantage of just having two drives its also not the easiest thing to set up sometimes i would go with one drive. Just make sure you do your homework on sata drive installation it isnt hard but so often goes wrong as people try to do it on the fly.

But look below that!!!!

choose the Venice 3500+ and that motherboard and you save $20...maybe a year from now you could throw in another 6800gt and keep playin the best games at great frame rates....just a thought
