Default Finally looking for approval

Hi I think I've finally decided on my new build and thought everyone could look it over to make sure I've got everything compatible. I'm not a gamer just will be mostly used for home/office multitasking and being newer than what I already own. All input and suggestions are welcome. Oh yeah keep in mind I'm kinda on a tight budget.




psu(already have from old computer)

Antec True power 430w



graphics card

And two old maxtor 40gb 7200rpm hard drives, an 8x dvdrw+-, a 48x cdrw, two monitors from hp hps ive aquired, 3extra case fans and round ide cables

Looks good if you need something to just surf the net and do word processing. That computer could even handle casual gaming.

I agree with ^. That rig will do a lot more than just buisness and stuff like that. You can even downgrade to save a few bucks.
