Hey guys, it has been a while since I posted here!

So I currently have 760 dollars in hand. I've been looking for good upgraded PC. I will be using some of my parts from this PC which is my ATi X800 XL AGP card, my 80 GB Hard Drive and my DVD drive. I'm not positive if I should get this upgrade, or a XBOX 360. I've been planning and upgrade from when BF2 came out.

Current PC Specs:

Asus A78NX-X Socket A Motherboard (http://www.newegg.co....ription=13-131)
3x 256 MB PC2700 RAM (http://www.newegg.co....82E16820141302)
80 GB Western Digital (http://www.newegg.co....82E16822144122)
ASPIRE-X Case (http://www.newegg.co....82E16811144038)
LG DVD+R/DVD-R/etc. (NewEgg no longer carries it but it's a great drive that is still re-usable)
ATi X800 XL AGP 8X
Athlon XP 2200+ Thoroughbred 266MHz FSB Socket A Processor Model AXDA2200BOX (Also no longer exists on NewEgg)


The parts I want to get it upgraded to:

EDIT: WORKING URL
http://secure.newegg...AYBE PC UPGRADE

Should I go for it? Will everything be compatible? I know the MoBo is kind of cheesy but it seems good, supports all of the stuff I'm getting (correct me if I'm wrong please). I'll be building this one myself.

Thanks for the support,
Matt

You should be able to use your existing case if you buy a new power supply on its own, one with a 24 pin ATX connector for that board and just swap the PSUs over.

Otherwise if you go for the new case, you will probably run the risk of getting a case with a PSU that's only got 20 pin ATX connector. Although you can use these on a 24 pin board, it's generally not recommended.

But all the other bits will work, though remember to repair/reinstall your XP afterwards. And should the new memory be faulty, you should be able to fall back on your PC2700 stuff to be going on with.

Hi,

Yes I agree get another name brand psu the one that comes with the case does not have enough amps on the +12v to power your system get something with atleast 24A on the 12v.
