Hello...I am new to the forums and have been reading a lot on this website recently.
I have been wanting a really good gaming PC for sometime now and have been looking around at different PCs on the internet. What I found was that they were very expensive and had a lot of things I didn't want/need. I decided that I will build my own gaming PC. However, before I begin purchasing the parts I want to make sure everything will work.
If you could please respond and tell me whether this configuration will work or not that would be LOADS of help. I would hate to purchase all the parts and then find out that something doesn't work with another part.
I will list all the parts along with a link to the part as posted on newegg.
Processor: AMD 64 FX-60
Motherboard: DFI LANPARTY UT nF4
RAM: Corsair XMS 2GB TwinX
Video Card: XFX Geforce 7950GX2
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar 250GB Hard Drive
Tower: Tai-Chi VB5001sna
Power Supply: COOLMAX CW-650T 650W Aluminum
Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS SB0350
Monitor: ViewSonic VX2025WM 20.1" DVI 8ms
Optical Drive: SONY 16X DVD±R DVD DWQ120AB2
Hmm...I believe that is it. That totals to about $3070 I think. I will be using the mouse, keyboard, and speakers from my other PC and will be purchasing Windows XP Professional as an OS.
If I am forgetting anything, if one part is not compatible with another, or you have any suggestions on how to make this any better and still hover around $3000...I am all ears.
Thank you for any future help.
