Post Please rate my Computer Build

Hey guys,

I'm planning in building my own computer (for the first time) and I was searching newegg.com for computer parts for my build. I need your ratings. Rate it any number out of 10 and what made you choose the rating.

The parts are as said:

COMPUTER CASE

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

MOTHER

Newegg.com - Foxconn M61PMV AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

MEMORY

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Oh and by the way, my budget is really low because I'm 10 years old. And with my summer job including birthday money I will have about $380. If you have a recommendation of some part of a computer thats better than the one I found. Please mention it.

Thanks,

Fernade10

Wow, way to take my advice and completely ignore it...

Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3160813AS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

$348.74 after shipping, 20 bucks back in an MIR.

Because you waited, the build got 20 bucks more expensive since last month combo deals are worthless.

Just in case you forgot your other thread: Help on New COmputer Build

Now I know you did take the advice of some of those parts, but you left out the most important ones...the mobo and CPU. Changing that was not a great idea. If you really want better video, grab this card and hyrbid crossfire. You will see nearly double the performance.

Newegg.com - ASUS EAH3450/DI/256M Radeon HD 3450 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Low Profile Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

wow, 10, that is pretty early to build a computer... but i wish you luck mate, i hope it goes well. You may be better off going threw a builder from a store. such as ncixus or of the like.

you should look threw some of the stickies, and guides online before you order stuff though, for you know what you are getting your self into. There is a link in my sig to one of them.

Yes that 4650 performs better.
