Default Are all of these components compatable and good for a gaming PC?

Hi, I'm new to these forums, I was wondering if these are all compatible, and if they would make a good gaming PC, thanks!

It's a no-go on the Cooler Master PSU. They make good cases, not good PSUs. Look into an Antec or Corsair.

32-bit??? There is absolutely NO reason for anyone to use 32-bit on any new system. Get 64-bit or go dig up an old P4 system to use.

Value RAM in a gaming rig? Say it ain't so! Seriously, get some decent 1600 RAM. Kingston will work, but I would recommend Crucial or G.Skill.

Diamond graphics cards work, but they only offer a two year warranty.

Last one, but why in the %$## would you want to use an IDE/ATA drive? SATA 3.0 is the standard with SATA 6.0 coming on strong. ATA is two generations removed from what is being used. If you want slow, go for it. If you want speed and a warranty, look into Western Digital's Black series.

Default Re: Are all of these components compatable and good for a gaming PC?

in all honesty if this is going to be a gaming rig your gonna need more memory than 250. i suggest bumping it up at least to 500

Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

as for your ram i also suggest at least getting 6 gigs but if money is an issue then go with these

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

also on your card i'd go with this

XFX HD-575X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5750

AMD uses dual channel, not triple, so any RAM needs to be in sets of two (2GB, 4GB, 8GB, etc.).

Get the RipJaw. I'm using it now on my new system. No problems at all. Also bought GSkill in the past.

Great!!! Thanks for all of your replies! The reason I was thinking of using the crappy psu and HD is because I already own them, so it would save me some money until I can upgrade. I am thinking of upgrading later on to a better PSU so I can do crossfire 5750's. Also, is there any drawbacks to 64bit Windows? Thanks!
