would be a nice little workstation.

I found a problem. The memory you chose wont fit in the motherboard. You picked out regular ddr 3200 at 400 mhz.

You have to get DDR2.

Supports DDR2 667/533/400 DDR2 SDRAM

I would buy a Serial ata harddrive.

LoL, thats plenty of speed for counter strike and music. CS doesnt use much resources to play at all.


That pc should be fine lol.


If you are thinking about going into hardcore gaming with dual core cpu then you should go amd dual core with a fast video card. If you just want the power of dual core and just want to play older games like cs then your set.

DDR2 is a little bit more expensive, for 2 X 512mb sticks theses are the best prices from tiger.

I know corsair is really good memory. The #1 leader in memory.

Comes down to personal preference and price. Its not much more and they are even the 667 mhz ddr2 ram sticks.


*P.S. it would make it easier if you could buy all the parts from the same company. Its up to you. Newegg.com has the cheapest parts always with good shipping in the usa. Zipzoomfly is good too.

The X800 XL is way better and faster. You need a fast video card and a good amount of memory for bf2 to play nicely.


The X800 XL is 31.4Gb/s and the 6200 is only 8.0Gb/s. LOL two totally different cards, but I do recommend a fast video card like the X800 XL. Its all you will need for awhile its a fast card.

I went AMD i use my system for games music and studying, so aim for something like the system in my sig(maybe upgrade the cpu and ram, but not really neccesary). Ive not got a bad word to say about the connect 3d x800 xl its fabulous not a bother very fast and overclocks well too when i take a notion to tweak it. Could do with a better cooler like an arctic 5 but they are pretty cheap and the cooler is a better one compared to alot of the x800s with the bog standard ATI one.

That would better suit your needs. You seem like you dont need dual core.
