Default First-Time PC Builder, Please Help.

Hello all!

I am a first time PC builder, I've finally had enough of my Dell Dimension 3000, so I've decided to build my own. I do think that these components match with each other, but having some other opinions is good too.

Motherboard:

Graphics Card:

Processor:

RAM:

Floppy:

CD/DVD Drive/Burner:

Hard Drive:

Case/PSU:

I plan to use this computer for light gaming, I realize there is some issues with SATA hard drives and installing Windows XP, so I might change it to an IDE.

Thanks in advance for your response!

There are no issues with XP and S-ATA harddrives.

The case is fine, but this is a much better modular power supply.

That's a really, really bad PSU.

Hmm? I thought there was some issues with Windows XP not reconising the SATA drive if it was the only hard drive there?

I will change the PSU, however.
