can you give me a link to this mobo?

the ddr1 kinda turns me off but it probably doesnt matter too much.. also how hard is it to actually insert the motherboard and cpu? (i only messed with psu's, cdroms and hard drives)

I smell a diaster...dude I if I were you I would read building guides and even picture guides....

from what Iv read it dosent seem like you know what your doing building wise...

most people that purpose builds know how to hook evreything up,

and If I were you I would ask your mom to extend your budget.....I know I know its a budget pc but I dont know if its worth the money becuase that thing will sturggle this fall and on....IMHO

that powersupply has 18A on the 12V rail... i would SERIOUSLY consider getting a better power supply.. some good ones for $50 on newegg...

why did you downgrade your HD? stick to SATA...

not sure why you insist on crossfire mobo.. probably won't be worth going crossfire with the x850xt

overall tho.. thats a good build.

hmmm... your right about the sata, the motherboard doesnt support it so i'll need a better motherboard, since no case that comes with the psu is good i guess i could just fork out more cash to get a 600watt

i want this comp to be upgradable so i'm ready for future video cards, stuff like that.., is it worth paying more for a hard drive with a 16mb cache?

EDIT: is it worth paying the extra $40 to go from +3200 to +3500?

i don't think aspire makes the best PSUs.. check maybe with FSP fotron.. and you don't need 600watts! 450-550 will be more than enough... just make sure at least 25A on the 12V rails..

the 3500+ is good.. but generally not considered very good value.. the 3700+ would be a good upgrade since the L2 cache is doubled...

oh and that mobo you chose DOES support sata1.5 incase you were wondering...

that is the msi we suggested, its one of the best ones in the market.

w/e u do, do NOT go with an intel, especially with ur budget, you would do MUCH! better with an AMD. seriously dont buy a case that comes with a PSU, ur PC is WAY more likely to be fried.
