Default My actual second build

Like I said before I was going for a Micro ATX case, cause dealing with a Full size ATX case has been annoying for me. Well anyways here is my actual second build. Do not ask about my Hard Drive, a DVD drive, or ram because I got those covered. But here is my actual build for less then a measly 250$, plus I got a non-kosher OS so don't ask about that either. I really hope that this time around things won't get as hot as they do with this one because its a 90nm 89 watt consuming CPU.

Newegg.com - hec 6K28BB8F Black 0.8mm SECC Steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case - Retail

Newegg.com - MSI K9VGM-V AM2 VIA K8M890 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

Newegg.com - HIS Hightech H165PRF512N-R Radeon X1650PRO 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

Newegg.com - LOGISYS Computer PS350MA MicroATX 350W Power Supply 220V FCC.UL.CUL.CE & CB - Retail

Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane 2.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail

Newegg.com - SpecResearch MKS-301(PS/2) Black 104 Normal Keys 15 Function Keys PS/2 Standard 3-in-1 Multimedia combo Mouse Included - Retail

Please tell me if things will fit properly and etc. But I m like 6$ within breaking my budget so don't advise anything too expensive.

*Other thoughts* I m going to be adding 2 gigs of ram and a 250 gig hard drive with XP Royal. So honestly I think it'll be the most kick *** budget computer ever.

Wait!!!! I own that case and it is very good. Get another powersupply!
Newegg.com - Thermaltake Purepower W0100RU ATX 12V 2.0 500W Power Supply 115/ 230 V UL, CUL, TUV, FCC, and CB certification - Retail

and the video card:
Newegg.com - MSI NX8600GTS-T2D256E-OC GeForce 8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

I would strongly consider going towards an intel build but it is your choice.

In the beginning I only really wanted it so my Bro could play his little Maple Story without any problems. Which my old Dell GX150 couldn't handle with its on board graphics (thanks to my Dads friend stealing the video card).

Ok. Well a better power supply is still a must.

Take a look at these:

Newegg.com - Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC ATX 430W Power Supply 115/ 230 V - Retail
Newegg.com - FSP Group SAGA+ 400R ATX12V 400W Power Supply 120/220 - 240v NEMKO, TUV, CSA, IEC, UL, CE - Retail

or, i guess, this one:
Newegg.com - Rosewill Stallion Series Single 12cm Ball Bearing Fan RD400-2-SB ATX V2.2 400W Power Supply 115V/230 V UL, CSA, TUV, FCC - Retail

anyway, the case takes a full size power supply. As a general rule, don't get a power supply under $30 (and that's pushing it) unless it is on a blow out sale.

Eh, well the thing is that I already ordered. But as far as the power supply not fitting my case. That I m a bit skeptical about because I have the same case as well (brothers computer) and it seems like it'll fit alright. But I guess only time will tell. If the case is Micro-ATX and the PSU is Micro-ATX I m taking a safe bet and expecting it to work.
